My early training and work was in industrial design. Having my own business allowed time for university teaching and developing my artwork. I have painted in watercolors, acrylics and now in oils. Oil medium gives me more time to work the paint and more options for textures and finishes.  I have given many painting demonstrations throughout the Bay Area I have been accepted into many art exhibitions including the recent Statewide Painting Competition & Exhibition at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara. I have been granted a number of awards from painting exhibitions   Recently I was selected a winner in the Over 60 competition for Artist's Magazine and my work is in  corporate and many private collections. I am currently represented by The Los Gatos Museums Gallery in Los Gatos and Valley Art Center in Walnut Creek: both here in California 

.  My subject matter centers around Central California where there is a wealth of source material from the ocean, through the wine country, the rolling hills, the urban setting of San Francisco and the high Sierra. While I still do some still lifes, most of my paintings are landscapes. I like to show the brushwork or "structure" of the painting and rather than painting a subject as it is, I paint it as I would like it to be. I do some plein air painting, but mostly I work in my studio in Los Gatos, California where I have lived for many years.
