About me ...
Color, texture, and the changing light have
always left impressions on me. These elements, along with my love of nature and beautiful places, have informed where I've lived and have become the subject of many paintings.
I grew up in a family of artists, writers, musicians, and folk who were also practical, wise and culturally rich. They each inspired me and played a role in my becoming who I am today.
I've learned through trial & error and through time spent with other artists. Having no interest in the usual path laid out to young adults entering college, I instead focused on what moved me - art, dance, psychology, photography, and things of a spiritual nature. I've continued to use this quiver of skills all my life.
I've traveled extensively and lived in Hawaii, Mexico, and California. I'm currently in Santa Barbara, California.
I work with photography, with handmade pigments, acrylics, chalk pastel and mixed media.
