Originally from Virginia, USA. In the 1970's I was a potter on St. Croix, Virgin Islands. The 1980's I lived in Indonesia coordinating production for Java Wraps. I began painting in the 1990's while in northern California. Southwestern France has been my home for nearly 20 years. My life revolves around luxurious nature, the man I cherish, daughters I love, dear friends and the joy of animals.
