Shows and Awards


  " .... looked up your work.  Absolutely love it.  I've been painting sporadically for about 20 years but never reached your level of skill.  Just love  the way you find and display the beauty and life in the most mundane things.  I think you have reinspired me.  Are you teaching anywhere around San Diego?   A pleasure to see the paintings you've created!"
