I was born and raised in San Francisco's Sunset District between Golden Gate Park and the SF Zoo. I studied at SF City College and Fine Arts university extension courses. I married my high school sweetheart and raised two wonderful boys.
When time for retirement came, I found the passion for painting again. Watercolor is my medium of choice, it suits my artistic expression because it can be controlled or loose and expressive.
I am a member of the Sunnyvale art club and its former President. Currently, I am their Artist Demonstrator Coordinator. I have also taught one stroke painting.
Artist of the year for Sunnyvale Art Club 2015 and First Place Winner Santa Clara Library Show 2016
