Living Artfully...

I'm a West Coast Artist. I live in the East Bay Area, California and exhibit my art in the greater Bay Area.
I love abstract digital art. I use several software applications to create my work. Adobe Fireworks, Photoshop Element and Illustrator, which are very powerful software tools and I use them interchangeably.  I love photography and acrylic paints.  I received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts from East Bay State University.  World travel and making art are my greatest passions. I have so far seen parts of six countries. By far the most  inspiration for the arts in the places I visited was the Louvre  in Paris  and  Arles, where Van Gogh lived and painted.  But  the continent of  Africa will always be close to my heart and has been the greatest influence in my creation of art.  A few of  my photographs of my travel to West Africa can be seen on this site.   View More » 

Most recent travels include photography from trip to the Baltic Seas, featuring images from Russia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Poland and Denmark. My goal is to include portfolios for each country.
