I was raised in Southern California and earned a bachelor of Science degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Cal Poly State University at San Luis Obispo. I worked in the Nursery industry and did landscape design for several years after college. Painting was an intermittent hobby.

 

During a difficult season in my life, in which I moved to Ashland OR to care for my mother, my love for art and watercolor painting was rekindled and I have been painting ever since.

 

Although I work as a full time graphic designer, my journey with fine art continues. I can be found painting in the winter months and gardening in the summer months.

I show my work through Fine Art America. Use the links tab to find my Fine Art America page.
