     I was raised, educated, and introduced to art in San Francisco. The DeYoung Museum was nearby and my first experience with great art came from my first trip to the museum, which was a 5th grade field trip. I was fascinated by those wonderful paintings and I would visit the museum quite often to view the art. I did not pursue art as a career. My career spanned 36 years as a manager with the U.S. Postal Service . I would take oil painting classes when I could and became a "Sunday Painter". After retiring from the Postal Service in 2002, I was free to pursue my second
career as a landscape artist.

     I am basically a "self-taught" artist. My first mentor was a wonderful artist by the name of Orville Lawrence Hansen. Mr. Hansen gave me a solid foundation to build upon. After I retired, I participated in a plein are workshop conducted by artist Jay Moore from Colorado. The instruction I received from Mr. Moore was a turning point in my understanding of the technical aspects of painting and how to "see like an artist". I continued my education by taking workshops from established artists such as Charles Waldman, and "On Line" courses from artist Dan Edmondson. My second career as a professional artist is entering its tenth year, and I am continuing to learn, always striving to perfect my craft to the highest level I can. I consider myself a "contemporary Semi-Impressionist" painter

     My paintings have been in numerous galleries and exhibitions. I have won awards in juried shows and recently won a patron award at the Stockton Art Leagues prestigious Haggin Museum art show. My paintings are in collections nationwide. I am a member of the Mother Lode Art Association and I am currently represented by Galleria Copper in Copperopolis, Ca. and Petroglyphe Gallery in Mokelumne Hill, Ca.

     My inspiration comes from the landscape around me in which I attempt to convey upon the canvas the beauty of God's creation and the importance of protecting it through environmental awareness
