I paint primarily in watercolors and mixed water media, sometimes incorporating colored pencil, watercolor crayons, pastels, pen &ink or collage. I paint from real life as well as from photographs I've taken on my travels. 

My art background includes a B.A. in Fine Art from San Diego State University with a concentration in painting and printmaking. I've always been involved in creative projects, but I've only been concentrating on painting since 1997 when I began studying watercolors with Jan Ledbetter. I have also taken classes with Phyllis Greenway and workshops with Doug Walton, Linda Stevens-Moyer, Judi Betts, Jean Grasdorf, Gerald Brommer, Polly Hammett, Alex Powers, Carrie Brown, Chung Khee Chee, Skip Lawrence and Christopher Schink.

I show my work at This Century Art Gallery in Williamsburg, where I am also the webmaster and a member of the board, and have exhibited at Art on the Square and An Occasion for the Arts in Williamsburg for the past several years. I also do web-design for artists and arts organizations and am the webmaster for the VWS.

When I'm not painting, I work at the College of William & Mary as a web developer for the Office of Planning & Assessment.
