Thanks for visiting my website! I'm an artist, educator, curator, and writer based in San Francisco. My painting is characterized by bright, playful geometrics, and my inspiration is fed primarily through travel. Two recent research trips to Suzhou to study Classical Chinese gardens, calligraphy and ink-wash painting is informing my current body of work. In the studio, I'm preparing for my third solo show at Galleri Urbane in Dallas. In addition to the Dallas shows, I've had several solo shows in the Bay Area, New York, and Southern California, including the Riverside Art Museum.
Internationally I've participated in many group shows in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Thailand, Australia, Uruguay and Argentina. I've also been in group shows at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Crocker Art Museum, Monterey Art Museum and the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.
I earned a BA from UC Davis and a MFA from Mills College, and I also attended the Sorbonne and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Currently I'm adjunct professor in the Studio Art and Art History departments at University of San Francisco, and recently I taught summer classes in art history and film appreciation at Qingdao University in China.
I've curated a number of shows, including two photography shows, and I'm on the board of directors of the Telegraph Hill Dwellers Organization as the Art+Culture Chair. I'm the recipient of the Cadogan Fellowship Award, the Artadia Award in the Visual Arts Grant, and the US State Department's American Artists Abroad Program.
