I studied at California College of Arts, and have degrees from Yale and the University of Chicago. For many years I supported art and family by working in the Bay Area. After 30 years in San Francisco, I moved to Minneapolis. I have exhibited throughout the US. Works have been acquired by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Nature Conservancy, and the Weisman Museum, and can be found in collections here and abroad.
I was taught in the figurative tradition. I also work abstractly; I don’t always have a theme I want to put forth. I don’t know how I will finish when I start, except there is something within I want to build, something I want to say. Painting is not the same as speech, even when it depicts a scene. We leap to story, but it is the story behind speech, that is my subject matter.
