I attended UCLA and received both BA and MFA degrees. I studied with Richard Diebenkorn, who, along with Franz Kline, continues to provide inspiration.
I am an Emeritus Professor of Art (Metropolitan State University of Denver), where I taught for 26 years, after having taught at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Arizona State University.
I have an in-home studio, constructed when I retired in 2003.
I write a weekly opinion column for eight Douglas County, CO newspapers. A compilation, This is not a dachshund, will be printed by Tattered Cover in 2013.
