In my professional career I have had the privilege of being a classroom teacher in high school and community college throughout California, and the bulk of that time happily here at Nevada Union. Mostly what I taught was Drawing and Painting, but there was a smattering of History and a bunch of Literature thrown into the mix. There was even a brief stint working on a statewide policy committee for Delaine Easton’s ArtWorks Task Force. But, really, I have been a classroom teacher.


Artist Statement

These pieces are made of oil and acrylic paint on canvas, masonite, or paper; charcoal and pastel on paper.

Markings are meditations on landscape and figurative themes through the process of mark making. Normally, each piece starts out with a person/place that is very specific. With the first mark onto the canvas or paper, though, the process takes over: where it becomes a series of reactions to the chain of each mark placed: those marks build a specific time and place about the process itself, the finish is not a forgone conclusion but a result of following those marks. The pieces are specific, but not portraiture. 

Hopefully, Markings has people looking and feeling first, thinking second (to paraphrase ee cummings).
