I am a native Californian, residing in Southern, CA.  I have enjoyed creative pursuits all along my life journey.  Portraiture is my love.  I have a wonderful husband of 44 years and two grown children.

I am a pictorial artist working in portraiture and landscape.  My portraiture work began in the 1990 with 7 years of intense study under two master artists who greatly influenced me, and through them I was introduced to current and historical masters, to their styles, and to their perspectives. 

My creative interests help me balance my life.  My art flows as I respond to a model or scene.   I want the viewer to have a sense of rest in my art and to linger to finish the story I have begun. The message I want to convey with my art is one of harmony and simplicity.  Enjoy!
