I was born in the Pacific Northwest and attracted to visual print and lettering at an early age.
I studied liberal arts at Chabot College in Hayward, CA; Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA and finished with a BA in art at California State College in Hayward, CA.
Events, ideas and music are sometimes a starting point for my work.
Color and texture are paramount and I allow each piece to develop and morph as it will. Whether painting, creating a collage or making sculpture, it is a similar voyage. Accidental results are embraced and I welcome the magic which often happens during the process.
