I have shown my artwork widely in Mendocino County, the San Francisco Bay Area, Arizona, and Mexico. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the California College of the Arts and a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Mills College (both with an emphasis in printmaking). My past prints, drawings, and paintings have involved dream imagery,  abstract pattern, and a love of landscape. For the past two decades Mendocino County scenes dominated in acrylic and watercolor. My approach to landscape is inspired by the Post Impressionist landscapes of the “Society of Six,” an early 20th century Bay Area painting group.

Having retired in 2015 as Curator at the Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, I’ve used my additional time in the studio to explore various past themes with new approaches such as: modernist abstract seascapes, family history and politically inspired collages, and even a series of small Illinois prairie landscapes. Additional works can be viewed at our barn studio in Philo that I share with my wife Colleen.
