Born in Los Angeles in 1957, I have sought the sanctuary of paint since I was a child and have painted avidly since the age of 14. I studied drawing, painting, lithography and photography at various schools: Art Center and Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, Cabrillo College and the University of CA in Santa Cruz, and Instituto Allende School of Fine Arts in Mexico. I earned my BA in Pre-Columbian Art History at UCLA in 1983. My paintings and my photographs have been exhibited in CA, NM, CO and Italy, and are collected across the U.S., and in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, Singapore and Thailand. From 1999 through 2013, I spent most of each year living in a small Etruscan hill town in Tuscany, where we kept a spacious 12th century flat, and where it was easy to give myself the precious gift of time — time to draw + paint, time to write, time to wander the tranquil, forested hills. From 2014 through 2016, my home + studio were in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I now divide my time between Santa Barbara, CA, Italy and Spain.
