It has been a privilege and an honor to make art for most of my life. Today I make art in squares, taking complex images of local landscapes, breaking them down into small squares and painting "one square at a time".
Painting by squares gives me a solid structure to work with, focusing only on the square in front of me. When the squares are all put together the underlying image shows through.
I was a professional muralist for over 30 years. During that time I learned new ways to make murals that made it easier to paint in a studio instead of on the job. Today I use a similar process painting in the studio working from photos.. I also teach a class on drawing for industrial design students at Mt. SAC Community College. I enjoy teaching and working with people.
I have a BA of Fine Arts from CSUN, 35 years of professional experience, shown my work in commercial art galleries, and I currently teaching drawing and design at Mt. SAC Community College, in Walnut, CA
