I’m a California native who currently resides in San Ramon, CA. I have degrees in Drafting Technology, Interior Design and Photography. I worked in the Silicon Valley as a Printed Circuit Designer for 35 years before retiring from my full time professional career and committing myself to my life-long interest in art. I have been drawing and painting landscapes, portraits and still life in oil, acrylics, pastel, watercolor, and color pencil. Other interests include jewelry, lampworking and glass fusing. I’m a member of Color Pencil Society of America, CPSA Chapter 210, San Francisco, CA. (Treasurer), and the Livermore Valley Pencil Artists, Livermore, CA.
