Artist Statement
I grew up in San Jose, painting and drawing at an early age. In 1975, I attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. While earning a B.A. in Art at the U.C. in Santa Barbara, I began my life as a professional artist by participating in competitions, showing in galleries, and selling my paintings at outdoor art festivals.

In 1992, I moved to Cambria, where I met the Earth Sea ceramicists, future owners of Amphora Gallery. It was suggested that I explore earring designs through my paintings, and I have unexpectedly enjoyed the process. In 2018, Amphora Gallery became the sole purveyor of my handmade earrings.
