About The Artist

Artist Statement

I am inspired by dance, the human figure and my native Bay Area landscapes which define
my figurative, abstract paintings. I see the connections between the energies of all of these and depict
the fluidity and movement of these patterns and shapes.  I am moved daily by the beauty of our Bay Area environment.


Born in San Francisco; studied at UC Berkeley, UH Oahu  and the San Francisco Art Institute.  Continuing education at Marin Junior College, studies with Michael Azgour, Mark Eanes and the Creative Visionary Program with Nick Wilton. I’ve served on the Marin Arts council, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, the Board of Artisans Gallery, the Marin MOCA gallery Committee and the ICB Artists Association. My paintings are represented in  private and corporate collections from Canada to New York to Mexico and in California. I have been traveling all my life, extensively in Western Europe, the Yucatan, British Columbia, Mexico and Hawaii. The museums of Paris, Nice, Florence, Barcelona and Bilboa still draw me there.
