Springtime in Round Valley
Born in the San Joaquin Valley, raised in Salinas, CA and currently living in Dublin, California. My career started with a box of Crayola crayons and advanced to painting 4×8 sheets of plywood and cleaning brushes for my sign maker step-father. I learned the art & craft of brush lettering, gold leafing and silk screening at his side, then earned a BFA in design from California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in Oakland, CA. My professional career has included Graphic Art, Advertising, Marketing and Logo Design. My fine art career has included, watercolor, oil & acrylic painting, pen, ink & pencil drawing, which took a back seat to my commercial career until I retired. I have had more than a 50year career in art and design, my current focus being watercolor. My work has won awards throughout my lifetime as an artist.
