Biography


I have been studying art for 25 years.  I am also a Psychologist.  I find painting extremely therapeutic.  I think of nothing else while painting, it is meditation.... focus on your painting and all else floats away.

I took workshops and college classes over the years.  In 1993 I began taking classes at the Laguna College of the Arts with Roger Armstrong.  I continued painting with him for seventeen years.  He was not only talented in every medium, he was the best of teachers.  I never once heard him say a negative word to any student.
 
Roger loved to speak of "happy accidents", beautiful effects that happen unexpectedly.
 
My Happy Accident:

I decided that I would show my work after all these years.  It seems that I had a happy accident.
