Born in 1949 my first artwork was viewed in 1957 at my third grade open house. I created a large mural piece of Crayola art for the class and it was displayed for our open house. I knew then that art was my passion.
I attended four years of drawing and watercolor painting classes from Robert Beeching in Oakhurst, California. I took my first oil painting class in downtown Fresno in 1975.
I currently live in Raymond, a very small town in the California foothills, above Fresno. I share five acres with my son, mother, younger brother and sister-in-law. I am now retired and spending time on my “born-love for art”. I am a member of SWA San Joaquin Chapter and a member of the Riverpark Art Studio in Fresno. My paintings can be viewed at the Riverpark Art Studio.
