artist My father’s writing and illustrations inspired me to pursue drawing and writing in my youth. Later I briefly pursued art in college. But mostly I loved dance, and that passion made its way into my current paintings.

I find dance or movement in almost all my subjects.  And watermedia seems the best for rendering that fluidity and feeling.

I love learning about painting, and have studied with extraordinary and accomplished instructors. These include:  Nicholas Simmons, Mike Bailey, Jim Smythe, Stephen Quiller, Ursula O’Farrell, John Salminen, and Lian Zhen. My art critique group continues to be a wonderful education as well.
