I'm a nature/wildlife artist. I love to travel and enjoy reading, gardening and birdwatching; My taste in music runs to Mongolian rock and pop, 60's rock. pre-1940's jazz, afro-celt world music. I started my art career as a sign painter's apprentice in 1976 and earned a BFA in Illustration in 1989 from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Before becoming a full-time oil painter, I worked as a freelance sign painter/graphic designer, then graphic designer/illustrator. I'm a Signature Member of The Society of Animal Artists (SAA), an Associate Member of the American Academy of Equine Art (AAEA) and a Fellow of The Explorers Club. My work has appeared in a variety of prestigious national juried shows. I travel to Mongolia every year, where I visit the countryside, wildlife watch and help support a women's felt craft collective.
