About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist, Garden Designer
Location San Mateo, California, United States
Introduction I have been creating artwork my entire life. I majored in art at UCSC, and have continued to pursue creativity in a great many different ways ever since. I paint mostly in oils and acrylics, as well as doing graphics. I have done everything from creating murals and canvases, to tattoo and t-shirt designs. I have a website with Cafe Press where some of my paintings are available printed on t-shirts and other objects. You can go to that site by clicking on my profile, below. I am also a dedicated organic gardener, having created vegetable and ornamental gardens across the country for almost forty years, I strive to learn how humans can live upon the earth in a way which promotes life, balance, and beauty. This interest has led me to Permaculture, which I try to integrate with aesthetic consideration. I am available for landscape and garden design and consultation. My approach is to work in harmony with the givens of the environment, using strictly organic gardening techniques. I consider gardening another medium for my art.
