BA, MA- Art Education/Painting
My career focused on teaching art to high school students, working 35 years with Santa Cruz City Schools, 3 years teaching with Department of Defense Schools in France and Germany, and 5 years with the Harker School in Silicon Valley. Over the years my painting production was somewhat limited due to the demands of teaching. Since retiring in 2005, I now have more time for painting.
My paintings have evolved primarily from color and form found in nature. Abstract patterns seen in the landscape, water and cloud formations become the foundation of the work. The paintings are created on canvas using acrylics.
