I was born in Livermore California, did my K - 12 years in San Leandro California, and graduated with Bachelor of Science Degree in Geography and Economics from the University of Nevada at Reno.

My working career included employment with the US Marine Corp, AT & T, Nevada Bell, BC Analytical, Holy Names University, Chabot College, and the University of California Berkeley. I retired in 2005.

Inspired by the work on numerous Mexican and American painters, I took up painting in 2009. Since then I have produced over one hundred works of art. Most of my work is contemporary abstract and mid century. I donít paint because I hope to inspire people or provide them with a religious or out of body experience. I just like to paint.

I currently belong to the Pleasanton Art League and the Livermore and Alameda Art Associations. I work with acrylic on canvas but on occasions I use acrylic with non-sanded grout on burlap. My work is always on display at the Alameda Art Association gallery in Alameda California.
