About the Artist

I am a wood block print artist and painter. While in Seattle, over a period of four years, I created a series of woodblock prints inspired by the Japanese artist Hokusai, and his 36 Views of Mount Fuji, which I called 36 Views of Mount Rainier. Now living in Los Angeles, I have embarked on a new series of woodblocks, The West Coast: from Mexico to Canada. I draw inspiration from Francis Gearhart, and studied in master classes with most of the Bay Area Figurative Artists at the Santa Fe institute of Art. I am largely self-taught.
