Although I live in Florida a part of me will always be a Californian. Growing up in Southern California and later moving to Northern California, I began my Professional career in Sacramento, and had the fortunate opportunity to direct a Fine Arts Center for Adults with Developmental Disabilities. I pursued my Artistic career exhibiting in galleries throughout the state and doing commission work for consultants and designers. My work has always been centered in exploring the urban landscape.  Since moving to Florida I have continued to paint, primarily for myself while expanding my subject matter and materials and recently I have begun working with images from carnivals and fairs, taking them out of context and treating them as still lifes. Landscapes have always taken a back seat to my urban work, but I have developed an interest and an appreciation for landscapes here in Florida, however flat it may be.
