After retiring from a 30-year career as a graphics artist with the Federal Government, I am enjoying being a mixed media artist, experimenting with new materials and techniques.  Nature is very important to me since so much of my inspiration and energy comes from it. I try to spend as much time as I can painting in Idyllwild, an artists’ community located in the San Jacinto mountains and also at Lake Almanor, a mountain retreat in northern California. My style is representational, painting landscapes and the figure. After taking an exciting mixed media collage workshop from the Southern artist Carrie Burns Brown, I now am discovering the excitement of new combinations of materials, continuing with nature themes but gravitating also to the abstract and nonrepresentational. I am active with the San Diego Watercolor Society, the Point Loma Artists and several artists’ crtique groups.
