I was brought up in Albuquerque, ages 8 to 18, and have thought of myself as an artist since the age of 8, perhaps due to the art and color around me in New Mexico. It was no disgrace as my great grandfather’s first cousin was J. S. Sargent. In fact all we four siblings became artists.

I studied at the Boston Museum School and graduated with a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute. But I had to make a living so I became a graphic designer and installer of corporate art until I became a muralist in 1993, living in Somerville, MA, most of that time. In 1993 I returned to New Mexico spending winters here and painting murals in Massachusetts in the summers.

I continued to do public murals until 2009 and managed a public mural project for the City of Gallup overseeing the creation of eight murals by local artists. In 2003 I become a full time painter and a full time resident of New Mexico.

1996 to 2020 I painted landscapes in many different styles with occasional forays into abstract but since 2020 I have completely immersed myself in color. I have jokingly said I do very realistic pictures of color. But I know no better way of putting it.

I am obsessed with making color communicate in all the ways it can, spacially, representationally, physically, emotionally. I am discovering new things about color every day.
