Artist's Profile

I began my study of the arts as a child. As an adult, I went to college and graduated on the deans list with a psychology major and Spanish minor. After teaching elementary school in California for four years, I felt I had not found my true strength. My young adulthood was filled with many experiments to find my interests. I made and sold clothing and jewelry.

I became interested in portrait photography and for twenty years, I made my living in that field. On the side, I pursued painting, showing in San Francisco Bay Area venues. In my mixed media conceptual art, I had pieces shown in Bay Area museums.

In 1999, I moved to San Luis Obispo. In my first two year as a member of the San Luis Obispo Art Center, I was honored with three awards. Two were from consecutive Brush Strokes shows, both best in acrylic, and one was from the watercolor show. This March, 2005, I won first place in a non objective abstract show, making that the forth award in five years!

I paint in many mediums; watercolor, acrylic, pastel and oil. What a treat it is to play in these mediums! I love the food-like lusciousness, the living quality of paint. In addition to the fun of art, its challenges also are ever present. This is why art provides me with a lifetime path of personal study. A Zen-like balance between technique and intuition, between work and play, are just a small part of what is required. Painting is always full of surprise and challenge. Working through the frustration is part of the gratification. The gratification I get from my experience of completing a painting is the pleasure I hope you receive in its viewing.
