I started painting by reading and practicing from every watercolor technique book I could find.  Formal studies commenced with Richard Becker at the Palo Alto Cultural Center and continued for three years with my mentor, Jean Packard, at the Packard Studio in Los Altos, California.  
In addition, I have taken workshops with the following Artists:  Zoltan Szabo , Carla O’Conner, Jan Kunz, Judy Morris, Don Andrews, Pat San Soucie, Sue Bennett, Betty Carr & Howard Carr
ARTIST'S STATEMENT:  Painting  is a spiritual experience; the energy, joy and fulfillment of creating images that come from within.  There is magic when paint and surface unite and a beautiful picture is born.  

Born and raised in Southern California, I attended Long Beach State University and graduated from Chico State University.  My favorite subjects are florals, still lifes and  landscapes, especially  sunlit scenes with lots of shadows.  I take Commissions and love to do pet portraits.
