I have been making art for more than thirty years and have a large inventory of work. Largely self-taught, I started as a painter, enjoying capturing my native state, California, in plein air landscapes. My passion in producing art motivated me to learn printmaking, art book making and hand-pulled paper making. Today I combine my printmaking skills with painting, works on paper, canvas, wood panels and found materials. I’m heavily influenced by the Bay Area Figurative movement and this style is evident in my artwork, Let Her Go selected for this show.
