Whether painting the Sierras, the Central Valley, Mexican villages, or the Greek Islands, painting is my passion.
I have participated in the art world since my teenage years. While living abroad in Spain during the early 70's, I produced my own ceramic art jewelry, in addition to managing a small art gallery on the island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean. When I returned to the states, I started and ran a wholesale manufacturing art business producing both fine silver jewelry as well as ceramic art jewelry and cast pieces.
Since 1983 I have ad a sucessful career in residential real estate in the Davis area. During the past 10 years, I have spent more and more time following the journey of creating art. Along my road, I have had the privilege of studying with some wonderful artists such as Gregory Kondos, Roz Farbish, Alvarro Castagnet, Don Andrews, and Stephen Quiller.
My medium is acrylic and other water based media.
I love color.
I love to travel
And I try to convey both these loves of mine in the art I create.
