I received my Bachelor of Arts
degree in Studio Arts with an emphasis in printmaking and photography from Humboldt State University in Northern California where I studied under the guidance of professor and artist Michael Bravo.
Always eager to experiment and continue my drawing interests and ideas in non-realistic imagery, I concentrated in the printmaking process known as stone lithography.
My interest in lithography took me to
graduate school at Ohio University where I earned my Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in printmaking and painting under Donald Roberts and Mary Manusos, among others.
I have shown my work both nationally
and internationally and am included in several permanent collections. I taught for a period of time at California Polytechnic University, Pomona while also working with a software company which
developed graphic software tools. The majority of my career has been in the color graphics and digital imaging industries, most recently with wide format printing.
I have been drawn to the Western Landscape
since my teenage years. I can often be found exploring the mountains and deserts of the American West. Not a stranger to the Four Corners Area, I have been photographing the area in both color and
black and white.
