I have studied fine art and design at the Massachusetts College of Art and U.C. Berkeley Extension. Today I am a freelance artist at my home studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. My artwork can be seen in various galleries, shops and homes across the U.S. and beyond.

My art has been featured on several websites/blogs in the last couple years:
