Main Building 5A
Creation and exploration — that’s what painting has meant to me for over 30 years. While growing up in the Pacific Northwest I wasn’t much of an artist. But when I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area I was so enthralled by the light and sounds filling the area that I just had to paint!
Exploration and the continual development of my artistic skills are driving forces for me. I thrive on working just beyond my comfort level so that I struggle and grow as a learning artist. Because of these motivations, in the past 30 years, I have learned that I cannot possibly tie myself down to working in just one manner of painting. In my explorations, I have tried oils, acrylics, watercolor, and drawing in pencil and charcoal. Along the way I have found that I love painting still-life, landscapes and seascapes, and abstracts."
