"I grew up in Southern California and began my love of painting at an early age. After over 20 years of painting in oils, watercolors are now my painting media of choice because I admire their glow and transparency. I am particularly interested in painting birds, wildlife and local landscapes. My love of the outdoors provides a never ending source of ideas for new work. I am a member of the Coachella Valley Watercolor Society, Feather River Fine Arts Guild, and Plumas Arts Association. My paintings are exhibited at the Back Room Gallery in Chester and Plumas Arts Gallery in Quincy, CA."
