A fifth generation Californian, lived in the Sierra Nevada's until 7 then in Fresno til college in Oakland.

Started painting at age of 12 and had first commission at 14.

Lived in San Francisco working as a Color Consultant until getting married and having two Sons. Then moved to Sunnyvale and opened first of what eventully became three Art Supply/ picture framing stores called Accent Arts.

The business was sold in 1989 and I started painting daily in my Los Gatos Studio and continue to the present.l

My passion is painting in oils and pastels and I mainly focus on the Summer hills of Northern and Central California.

I have participated in numerous group shows since 1960 and have had several solo shows. I have won dozens of 1st place awards and two "best of Show" awards and my paintings are in over 600 private collections.
