My work represents mood and environment inspired by personal thought and visual experience. Each painting is a study in composition. I use color and texture to construct the planes of the piece and gestures to give the piece its momentum. I start with either a defining line or by laying down a color. I work the composition by responding to each new line, shape or color until I can view the piece without any one aspect distracting my attention from the whole work.

I began my formal art education in 1963 at the University of Michigan School of Architecture and Design. Received a MA in 1976 in painting and printmaking from Columbia University, Teacher's College.

I have been exhibiting in the Bay Area since 1988.
