Napa Valley College Faculty & Staff




Hello and welcome to my Napa Valley College web page. I have been teaching at Napa Valley College 13 years. I teach fine art studio and digital art classes.

I received my Master's of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from California College of the Arts in 1994. I am a practicing artist working primarily in oil paint and drawing. My digital work is typically manipulated internet images and painted text.

You can see my paintings at

My classes are grounded in critically engaged studio practice. I focus on teaching traditional, formal art skills and experimentation once these basics are mastered.
