About The Artist

Artist Statement

I grew up in Michigan and started drawing and painting at an early age.  I received a bachelor’s degree in art from San Francisco State but subsequently pursued a law career.  After several decades working in the legal field, I turned back to art and discovered the pleasures of painting the landscape in soft pastel.  The Marin coast and verdant hillsides provide limitless sources of inspiration for my work.

Art Medium(s)

Pastel, Drawing

I recently organized a group of local pastel artists.  This group meets twice a month at the Marin Society of Artists to paint and discuss their works.   Members of the organization have been involved in group exhibitions at the Marin Society of Artists and in other local venues.
