Biography


BACKGROUND
I grew up in San Francisco in a family of artists. My mother was a painter and my father, a sculptor. They met at the California School of Fine Arts where they were both on the Works Progress Administration. I was drawing pictures before I was able to walk.
 
I studied art at San Francisco State University where I received a Bachelor's degree in art with a specialty in painting and two credentials, one in multiple subjects and one to teach art.  
 
I have worked as a classroom teacher and an art specialist in several schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to teaching I have worked as a commercial artist, done printmaking at the Graphic Arts Workshop in San Francisco, supervised the painting of four community-based murals, and raised a daughter who is also an artist. I continue to study and learn as an artist and have received inspiration from the painters Randall Sexton, Pam Glover, and Van Waldron.
 
I am a member of the San Francisco Women Artists, the Marin Society of Artists, the Oakland Art Association, and the California Plein Air Painters. 
 
My work can be seen at the Benicia Plein Air Gallery in Benicia, Marin Society of Artists Gallery in San Rafael, and the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery in San Francisco. My work has been featured in several solo shows including exhibits at the Albany Community Center and Jack London Square in Oakland. I have also exhibited at the Graphic Arts Workshop in San Francisco, in faculty shows at Black Pine Circle School in Berkeley, and at several other local galleries, professional offices, and arts and crafts festivals.
