I'm a nature/wildlife artist. I love to travel and enjoy reading, gardening and birdwatching; My taste in music runs to Mongolian rock and pop, 60's rock. pre-1940's jazz, afro-celt world music. I started my art career as a sign painter's apprentice in 1976 and earned a BFA in Illustration in 1989 from the Academy of Art in San Francisco.

I'm a member of the California Art Club, a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation and a Fellow of The Explorers Club. My work has appeared in a variety of prestigious national juried shows since 2003.
