My graphic design work and my art work are closely related. They balance each other and often provide catalysts for new ideas in each field.
Yoga also influences my life; I have been a student of Iyengar asanas since 1990 and have been pursuing the goals of meditation since the 1980's. View my Yoga Art.
I consider northern California my home after having lived in southern California, Maryland, and Germany and having traveled throughout Europe and parts of the US. I earned a BS in Design from the University of California Davis.
This web site provides a glimpse of the work that has been created in my office and studio. Please contact me if you have questions about my art methods and work.
I am also a member of the ArtDivas. Our collective work is available at ArtDivasArt.com.
Poet, Suzanne Bruce, and I exhibit our interdisciplinary work at EkphrasticExpressions.com and ExphrasticAlchemy.com.
