My art describes detailed characteristics of objects and environments that are often momentary and overlooked as a motif. A portion of my art is solely from observation, other works are created by combining observation, a variety of images and visualization. I hope my efforts to realize the beauty and transcendence of nature will connect with viewers on a visual and emotional level.
As an artist and educator I devoted 40 enjoyable years at Laguna College of Art and Design as chair of drawing and painting, dean of fine arts and president. During that time I taught freshman through graduate levels in fine arts and continued an exhibition career participating in numerous group and one-person exhibitions around the country.
