I began my art “training” in oils in fifth grade, when a local Santa Barbara, CA artist opened up her garage to teach kids after school. I learned everything I know about the medium from her. I started working with computers in the late 80’s. I attended UCLA in and obtained a BA in Mathematics, which at the time was the quickest way into the computer industry. I entered aerospace and completed an MS in Computer Science at USC. Fast forward 30 years and my creative side called me to explore art as computer-based expression. I entered OTIS College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and completed my Certificate in Graphic Design in 2015. After thirty years, I moved from my home in Redondo Beach, CA to Oro Valley, AZ in October 2021, and I joined SAAG in July 2022. I am enjoying the local art scene and working on desert oil paintings now. I have experience in developing logos and branding, print related production, website development and acrylic / oil painting. I look forward to working with you to develop art and graphic design for your non-profit organization.
