Born & raised in a family of artists in New Orleans, creativity has always been the core of my existence. Without it I don't feel grounded. Teaching art is also very important to me. After getting my credential I taught painting for many years at schools & Adult Education as well as privately.
For my training I studied at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, CA. Then I was tutored extensively by the late world renowned artist Michael Linstrom. Robert Burridge has influenced my abstract work substantially in recent years. Currently I am working on impressionistic landscapes provoked by my 7-year stay in Carmel, CA.
Whatever I am painting my intention is to deliver tender emotions or a sense of passion. I want to convey what I see as extraordinary in seemingly ordinary scenes & subjects.
My work has been exhibited in business & galleries throughout Silicon Valley, as well as in Carmel & Benicia, CA.
