As a child, my brother would take art lessons and I would sit in the galleries of the Crocker Art Museum during his classes. It was an awe inspiring place for a five year old. I loved the color and majesty of the museum.
Always a favorite subject in school, I studied art at Sacramento City College, UC San Diego and UC Davis.I have made art throughout the years and shown in various galleries in California and Nevada. I now have a renewed energy and focus and enjoy every hour spent painting
The Landscapes are all about revisiting the places of Sunday drives that were a big part of my childhood as well as a tribute to my Father and his connections to farming. I enjoy returning to areas of California’s central valley and the western states that are so much a part of me. I am reenergized by the beauty of the land.
The Botanicals are primarily of succulents. They are simple and complex, subtle and wildly colorful. The early paintings were in a fairly small format, I have recently been challenged to take them up a notch to 3 x 4 feet.
I have a degree from UC Davis in Art and have been influenced by the teachings of Wayne Thiebaud, Ralph Johnson, and John Baldessari (in my early studies at UCSD). The impact of Georgia O’Keefe’s show at the SFMOMA in the early 70’s has never left me..
