I am a third generation Arizonan, born and raised in Tucson, AZ. Inspired by the desert I grew up in, I love recreating the beauty of it in my art along with it's wildlife. My paintings are not limited to the desert alone. Custom orders for tile and tile murals have given me the opportunity to paint everything from insects to elephants, however the most requested has been the Sonora Desert. My tile and porcelain work is kiln fired which creates a permanent bond that does not chip, discolor or fade. Original murals and single tile art pieces are designed for each customer or designer to create the look they are tying to achieve.
I began porcelain painting in 1985, and after many years of working and teaching this medium I began watercolor and acrylic painting which I absolutely love!
