I am a lifelong Berkeley resident, and I’ve painted scenes of the East Bay since the 1980’s. I am particularly interested in capturing the older neighborhoods. I also enjoy painting the beautiful chaos in my garden and I am experimenting with new techniques to show the dramatic changes facing our cities.
I currently teach watercolor, knitting and crochet at the Richmond Art Center.
