Artist Statement

I have been painting watercolors and drawing professionally for over thirty-five years. I've been exhibiting and selling my work all that time in private galleries and museums (e.g. San Francisco, Denver, London, DC, MD). I also do commission work, including portraits, cityscapes, and family compositions. I do drawings in pencil, ink, pastel, and mixed-media. I have done commercial illustration work in a variety of published magazines and books. Most of my work is representational, with expressionist tendencies.
