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. Before becoming a full-time oil painter, I worked as a freelance sign painter/graphic designer, then graphic designer/illustrator. I'm a Signature Member of The Society of Animal Artists (SAA), an Associate Member of the American Academy of Equine Art (AAEA) and a Fellow of The Explorers Club. My work has appeared in a variety of prestigious national juried shows. I travel to Mongolia every year, where I visit the countryside, wildlife watch and help support a women's felt craft collective.

December 3 was quite a day. First I got an email from Focus on Nature XV informing me that “Watchful (Saiga Antelope)” has been accepted into their exhibition. A couple of hours later I got an email from the California Art Club letting me know that “Elephant Seals, […]

Inktober 22 “Howlin’ “– Well, this is it for 2018 Inktober. I hope you’ve enjoyed my contributions. For this one, I reached waaay back into my past as a calligrapher, lettering artist and sign painter, which was definitely fun. So it’s all hand drawn with a pen over […]
Inktober 21 “Cape Buffalo” Love these guys. One of my favorites. I’ve seen them home on the range in Kenya and even from a safe distance these big bulls have tremendous presence. This one was at Lake Nakuru National Park. Gillott 170 nib, Diamine Jet Black ink, Strathmore […]
Inktober 20- “Khomyn Tal Takhi Mare” I’ve been to the Khomyn Tal takhi reintroduction location in northwestern Mongolia twice. Once in 2006, two years after it was established, and again in July 2015. Takhi/Przewalski’s horse (Equus ferus) are the world’s only surviving species of genetically wild horse. I […]
Inktober 19- “Dragonfly” One of the first things we did when we bought our one acre property over ten years ago was to put in a big pond, almost 40×40’. Within a couple of months two species of frogs, Pacific tree frogs and endangered red-legged frogs, showed up. […]
Inktober 18 “Kangaroo” Today’s piece is, like the gorilla, doubling as a study for a painting. Photographing the kangaroos at the San Francisco Zoo some years ago inadvertently ended up with this cropping, which I really, really liked. Tried out a looser outline and line work just for […]
Inktober 16 “Bison”– I love drawing bison! Especially the big bulls who are attitude from one end to the other. I saw this one in Yellowstone National Park. Went international with the supplies this time…a Yaroslawl “Orgtechnika” nib from a Ukrainian seller on Etsy. The nib has a […]
