I began a professional career as an art director in advertising after studying art and graphic design at the Art Center College of Design.
I paint using only three primary colors to arrive at rich and bold colorful evocative images derived through many translucent layers of watercolor glazes. The planned and frequently accidental experience of mixing water with pigment is spiritual. I am inspired by the moment. Some paintings tell a story, others capture a fleeting glance to let the observer experience a personal emotional moment.
My representational watercolors have been exhibited in galleries and shows throughout San Diego and in Arizona, and are in private collections in London, Paris, Madrid, Tokyo and the United States.
