I graduated from Willamette University with a degree in studio art and art history in 1969. From the mid-1980's to the present I have been painting with oils and have exhibited in national juried competitions including the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, Berkeley Art Institute to name a few. I am a signature member of the American Impressionist Society (AIS) and have received awards from AIS, Allied Artists of America and local plein air competitions.

Currently I show work on this website and on my daily painting blog.
