I moved from Ann Arbor to San Francisco in 1976 to continue work on my MFA. I have been working in my studio at Hunters Point Shipyard since 1999. My primary media are sculpture and painting.
I am interested in the natural world internally and externally. My painting is a reflection of my ongoing exploration of the wonder of the universe and our relationship to it. This consideration of dharma is my lens on cosmic law and order.
