I’m a classically trained artist, a graduate of Arizona State University in fine art. I began my professional career running the Rural Arts Project, a fine arts serigraph print shop for non-profit organizations in Pinal County. After moving to Phoenix, I joined MARS Artspace, which began a 15 year membership as an exhibiting artist including six years as Artistic Director and Curator.
Later, I purchased an iPhone and joined the App group on Flickr (MAAP/Mobile Artists’ Assigned Paintings). I connected with this amazing group of artists who were serious about iArt. We put together the following shows; two major iArt conventions (iAMDA); with the backing of Autodesk and my app, SketchbookPro 2 exhibitions at Autodesk University in Las Vegas; 1 Market St. (San Francisco); and the Stylectrical exhibit at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe. This last year I painted nearly 220 paintings by hand on my iPad.
My art reflects the era that has always meant the most to me: The 1950s. It was an era of Eichler homes, shell chairs, flying saucers, Atomic prints, finned cars and an optimism that anything can happen.
