I paint in a realist style and employ traditional Old Masters' techniques in oils to achieve color depth and a finish which meets my exacting standards.
Thank you for having a closer look at my work! I hold a BFA from The San Francisco Art Institute; a MFA from Mills College in Oakland; and a MA (Art Ed.) from the University of Central England. I studied with Richard Diebenkorn, Manuel Neri, Elmer Bischoff, Frank Lobdell, Richard Graf, Nathan Oliviera at SFAI; Ralph du Casse and Antony Prieto at Mills. My career has spanned 40 years service in arts education, which has been good to me. I've met many wonderful young people and have watched with pride blossoming careers in the arts. Exhibition record in resume on my web site. I teach painting, and ceramics at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon, WA., a patch work valley of working farms an hour north of Seattle midway to Vancouver, B.C. The area is famous for Tulip Season. I accept commissions for pet portraiture. A slide show of completed work is available on my website. I am also a member of Daily Paintworks and exhibit online with them.
