Decades after taking art courses at Seattle University and more recently private classes I'm finding myself painting colorful portraits, still lifes and abstract paintings. I enjoy using colors to invoke a mood and creating art that does not necessarily follow the rules of proportion and reality. I am inspired by the pre-war expressionist painters and contemporary American artists.

I have a degrees in Sociology, Nursing and worked in healthcare for the last 40 years. I am now semi retired and spend most of my days painting and when I can travel to the great museums of Europe and America. I am politically active and love reading historical biographies of politicians and artists. In that context it is understandable that my artwork has a sociological and historical perspective.
