I create art that is dynamic and evocative by design.
Effective communication has been a lifelong compulsion of mine. My career and reputation in the visual arts is built upon a command of artist's materials & methods and their expressive use. I am child of the 1960s, an era of cultural experimentation and exploration that still inspires me to search for new ways to express my feelings about the evolving world.
I began my professional art career as a freelance graphic artist, illustrator and portrait painter, while in high school. I added photography, glass and ceramic art, sculpture, jewelry making, printmaking, political cartooning to my professional skill while earning a Fine Art degree in college. In 1986 I turned my career focus to creating fine art in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel and various drawing mediums, earning many dozens of awards in competition, including the designated Master Pastelist by the Pastel Society of America in 1992. My art has been featured in national and international magaizines and books and exhibited in Yosemite and Grand Canyon National Parks, the California State Railroad Museum, and many public museums and private galleries.
My paintings of golf subjects caught the eye of Bel-Air Country Club in 1990, leading to a scene On the Tee With Jack Nicklaus at Bel-Air. Many art commissions followed, including graphic design and history displays for other clubs, among them: San Francisco Golf Club, Hacienda Golf Club, PGA WEST Resorts, Redlands Country Club, Southern California PGA, Santa Ana Country Club and Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles.
I enjoy the challenge of satisfying my creative spirit, and those of my clients. I invite you to explore my website and blog. I welcome your inquiries.
