I began painting in earnest in 2014, upon retiring from 35+ years as a practicing attorney.  I started with weekly classes at The School of Light and Color in Fair Oaks, California; and from there I moved to the Kirk Miller Studio in Folsom California, where I continue to study and learn. Interspersed amid this have been dozens of workshops from talented teachers throughout Northern California, and beyond. I love color and animals, and especially enjoy painting colorful animals. As a result, most of my work is of critters with eyes. I’ve found that the joy I experience painting grows exponentially whenever a furry-critter portrait is delivered to the pet’s “parents.” I gladly accept commissions, and encourage people to consider giving the “gift of art” to themselves and their loved ones.
