There has always been art in my life. Having five artist in the family; my life was set in stone, and I have never regretted a moment of it. Self taught through my family of mentors, art was the common denominator and bonding mechanism of my family. And because of it, it became the backbone of my imployment throughout my life including employment in National Advertising & Publicity, and twenty-five years as a restaurant and commercial kitchen designer.

In 2000 I was honored when my work was selected to hang at the California State Fair, and in 2003 I was chosen to be the official portrait artist of the 2002/2003 Western Conference Champions Sacramento Kings Basketball team.

I recently completed and submitted to my publisher my first book 'A Walk Back Home,' that sould be on the shelves by late summer. I was allowed to illustrate the book with a number of my paintings.
