I am self-taught, concentrating on art after a career in R&D at Apple Computer. Formerly trained as an electrical engineer, I received my graduate and post-graduate degrees from Stanford University. I am currently working in watercolor, as well as art-related website design. My husband and I enjoy outdoor adventure- camping, motorcycling through Europe and sailing our boat off the eastern and western coasts of North American. Along the way, I cannot avoid the realization that mankind has severely impacted many of our beloved places and wildlife. My artwork currently focuses on bringing these endangered species and places to the awareness of others. I relate to Frida Kahlo who once said “I paint flowers so they will not die”. Conservationists have learned that people will save what they love. I hope that my artwork will inspire others to consider their impact on the environment before it is too late to save it. I have not abandoned my technical training. It was no mistake that I was attracted to the creative technology of Apple Computer trained as an engineer fresh out of Stanford University. Now I can focus what I learned about the technology of color on my evolving images. Borrowing from the words of Wolf Kahn, I hope viewers of my art will embark on a journey of both enlightenment and pleasure. I am a member of the California Watercolor Association, Art Association Napa Valley, Napa-Solano Audubon Society, and Napa Land Trust.
