Born in Michigan, now working and residing  in West Sacramento, California. I started my creative self as a child coloring with crayons. Trying to keep up with my older brother who is a fantastic artist with drawings. We had a very special tin can that housed our most prized possession, the crayons. I started painting in high school and have been  painting ever since.  My subject matter  vary, although right now I'm doing  abstracts I will often have an icon or impressionist oil landscape in the works.  Often I have specific colors I want to explore. I'm interested in the paint itself, how it blends,  drys,  the light and dark of spaces. It's a process that ends up turning out entirely different from where I started. I like that they take on a life of they're own  for awhile and then I just take it to somewhere I want to see. Usually  many layers are involved before  it's  finished.  I've been included in a few group shows including,  "Small Works" at Sacramento Museum 2018,  Art Span Annual Auction, San Francisco 2016,  and "Art in the Park" Kalkaska, Michigan 1981. 

My  Icon style paintings are not in the traditional egg tempera painted on wood. They're  oil on gallery wrapped   canvas.
