I was born in the San Joaquin Valley and raised in Salinas, CA. My career started with a box of Crayola crayons and advanced to painting 4x8 sheets of plywood and cleaning brushes for my sign maker step-father. I learned the art & craft of brush lettering, gold leafing and silk screening at his side, then earned a BFA in design from California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in Oakland, CA.
My fine art career has included oil and acrylic painting, watercolor, pen & ink and pencil drawing, which took a back seat to my commercial career in graphic design. I have had a more than 50-year career in art and design and have occasionally won awards and recognition for my art and designs. I don’t remember ever not making art or having it in my life. I have a lifelong love for our constantly changing California landscape, which I try to capture in the fluidity and transparency of watercolor. Wherever possible, I like to include elements that offer local character to my paintings and there is always an element of my designer background present.
