I'm an artist luxuriating in San Diego, where every day is blessed. Born in Los Angeles. I am a color hound, whether paint or ink. I draw on paintings and paint on drawings. My cast of characters clamor often to fresh air, so out they come. My art is all over the place because I am. Earned an MFA in poetry a long while back. Taught college for 14 years. Now I own a PR firm and can pay some bills.Photographer Charlie Beck -- he's floating around FAA somewhere -- is my boy.
