Valle del Sur Art Guild
South San Jose, Morgan Hill, San Martin & Gilroy California
I graduated from Hayward State with an art degree and landed a job at Handcraft Tile hand painting tiles and carving the master molds for their hand pressed tiles for 25 years.
Still wanting to use my kiln, I began working with fused glass and have been making plates and jewelry.
I have dabbled with acrylics and oils, but found my true passion with pastels. I paint en plein air whenever possible, landscapes being my obsession.
