Artist Biography

I was born in Davenport Iowa and attended the University of Iowa where I graduated in 1973 with a BFA.

I lived and worked in Iowa for many years before I could go back to painting and pursue my passion.

I was involved in many art organizations and showed in various juried shows in the Midwest. I taught briefly at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport Iowa.

In 2015, we moved to Los Osos California in an effort to be closer to my son who lives in Los Angeles.

Here I have found the art environment to be very lively and joined the San Luis Obispo County Art groups including Morro Bay Art Association and the Allied Artists of Cambria. I have shown work at the SLO Museum as well. It is an honor for me to show my work at the library here in Cambria.
