I've always been drawn to art and have been painting for twenty years now. Born and raised in the San Francisco bay area, California, I have a Graphic Communication, B. Sc. degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
After moving to Surrey BC, Canada, a suburb of Vancouver, in 1988, I've continued to pursue my passion for painting through various art studies including University of British Columbia, Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Focal Point Photography Studio, and most importantly, hours and hours in my studio experimenting and honing my style. I believe art feeds the soul.
