A native Californian, I have B.A. and MBA degrees from Stanford University. I worked in tax, accounting, finance, management, and financial training for nearly forty years.
I have been a writer and have pursued a variety of visual arts virtually all my life. I enjoy travel, capturing people and places in my photographs.
Most of my writing has been poetry, but since March 14th, 2020, the day after COVID-19 upended my world, I have been writing a daily journal, illustrated with photos, describing daily life, expressing opinions, and including new poems and bits of memoir.
I have studied drawing, painting, printmaking, and weaving at the Richmond Art Center, the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, and the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto and hope to resume these studies in the future. My art is moving from traditional landscape/figurative to portrait and abstract work. My weaving emphasizes color and texture. My poetry centers on aging, loss, and relationships.
