I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. After getting married, we moved to Oregon where we spent the next 25 years in the Bend area. Central Oregon is the perfect place for artists that are interested in landscapes with the beautiful mountains and trees. This is where I started my watercolor painting over 20 years ago. I have painted off and on through the years. I now live in Prescott, Arizona where there are many incredible vistas to paint. I joined Mountain Artist Gallery in 2007 and have had my work in many shows through the years. My philosophy is... Just let your imagination run wild and you will come up with some very special works of art!
