Born is Southern California, my artistic skills were recognized early at age 5. Since that time I have studied and practiced in a variety of mediums, with emphasis first on drawing, and then on painting and since 2009, I discovered photography.
I received a BFA from the college of Santa Fe, New Mexico. I studied master’s level photography at the Academy of Art in San Francisco for 4 years.
While various masters of painting and photography have influenced me, my biggest influences are from traveling, hiking, kayaking and diving. These activities have given me perspective and insight, and even more importantly a sense of being alive while on the earth.
All of the places that I have lived and traveled are now part of the landscape of my soul.
