Biography


For me art is a sentimental journey.
I am an impressionist painter, primarily working now in soft pastels on sanded paper. I hope to connect with people who share my love of landscapes painted in and around Northern California beaches and parks from Big Sur to Davenport. Through the language of art I can express the joy I feel when creating a magical world of unlimited possibilities for combining colors, shapes,lines, and textures.
 
Although I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. After receiving a BA at CSUN in 1972, I moved to the San Francisco Peninsula to work as a Graphic Designer for an ad agency, followed by positions in marketing for high-tech companies. For the last several years I have been able to devote more time to my passion for art making in Northern California, and enjoying memberships in two plein-air painting groups. As a sustaining member of the San Jose Museum of Art’s “Let’s Look at Art” program I contribute to their programs for bringing a very interactive 50-minute art presentation covering the elements of art, and art history into local elementary school classrooms, usually with Zoom.
 
I have won recognition in local art shows and online competitions, but to see my work in person…visit Gallery 9:
