About the Artist

Art Calendar Cover

I began painting in 1988 while studying art at the California State University of Northridge, where I obtained my BA in 1990 and my MA in 1992. The month after my MA show my work was shown by the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department in their West Los Angeles City Hall Gallery.  The following year, I received first prize in a juried competition at the Carlson Gallery of the University of Bridgeport. This exhibition was juried by Elisabeth Sussman of the Whitney Museum at the time she was putting together a very controversial Whitney Biennial. One of my paintings was chosen for the cover of Art Calendar Magazine in September of 1993 and a different painting, again in 2002.   In 1994, I had my first Museum show at the Las Vegas Museum of Art Main Gallery and I had my first of many solo shows at the Mark Woolley Gallery in Portland Oregon. At that time I was invited to give a lecture about my work to the members of the Portland Museum of Art. In  ensuing years my paintings have shown in numerous gallery and university settings around the country. I was with the Mark Woolley Gallery and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Rental and Sales Gallery who represented me until 2006, when I to Birmingham, Alabama, where I continue to paint.
