About The Artist
My work continues to evolve, reflecting experiences and perceptions of my surroundings. I continue to search for new ways to express my thoughts visually, experimenting with various techniques and mediums. I strive to create work that engages the viewer with a starting point and allows his or her own personal path of interpretation. I like working in layers, and find painting and printmaking are especially conducive to my process.
My earliest memories are of making art and wanting to be an artist. I studied Drawing, Painting, Printmaking and Textiles at Cal -State Fullerton, earning a B.F.A. I moved to San Francisco and worked as a cartographer and scientific illustrator for several of years, then returned to academia to earn an M.F.A. at Claremont Graduate University. While at Claremont I also studied Painting, Printmaking and also developed a deeper appreciation of Art History and Architecture. These studies, coupled with my time traveling and living in Europe, have given me much personal inspiration for my own work.

I am so fortunate to have a studio in the Industrial Center Building (ICB) in Sausalito (for more than 25 years). I cherish the spirit and camaraderie found here. I live in West Marin and also work and teach at my studio in Woodacre, I feel like I have the best of both worlds!
