PAINTER, TRAVELER, CONTEMPLATIVE
I’m a native Californian who has been creating art since childhood. I’ve worn many hats during my lifetime from physics lab assistant to non-profit fundraiser but art has always been the one constant thread.
Enjoy wherever I am in the world walking and discovering quirky places; reading and writing poetry generates visual ideas for my paintings - sitting quietly with a good cup of coffee and a book of poetry is a little slice of heaven; and when my neighbor’s cats come by daily for belly rubs and treats. Shhh…don’t let my neighbor know about the treats!
When I’m not in my studio, I’m in my garden, walking in the neighborhood or sipping coffee at my local café.
