I am a California impressionist working in pastels, oils and sumi-e. Drawing has always been a passion, as is working outdoors. Time in trees is special, but I also like sketching over coffee in shops. I have a sequence: imagine what to render, select the right medium and do it, throw out anything I don't to see again or show, show it to other afficianados, and back to imagine since the steps were completed.
I trained at SF School of Fine Art and subsequent workshops at the Portland Museum and Marin Community College's great art dept. The ICB artists have long standing figure drawing groups and that provides advanced technical information as well as a great sense of community. I am past president of the ICB Artists Association.
