My older brother, stationed in Honolulu during the Viet Nam War, went missing from the Army.  He has never been found. His disappearance propelled my life to living each day to the fullest by traveling extensively and recording my trips.


Following college I taught in Mexico for five years, took a break from teaching, only to return to it at age 54 all the while continuing my own artistic development along the lines of Georgia O’Keefe, Wolf Khan, Romare Beardon, and Matisse.  My art is a summary of my life’s travels combined with a keen desire to travel to Mars!

Now retired I’m continuing to take art classes focusing on drawing and figurative collage and have had my work on display at the de Young museum.  How cool is that?!?!
