After graduating with a BA in journalism, I studied illustration at San Francisco's Academy of Art. With thirty years of advertising and children's books behind me, I am a "recovering illustrator"--concentrating on painting and still a work-in-progress. Because of my background, I began as a realist, but I admire and am moving toward more painterly impressionism. I have been blogging my paintings sporadically since 2007 and joined DPW in November, 2012.
Although am unable to post as often or as regularly as I would prefer, participating in DPW has been both rewarding and delightful. David, Carol and Sophie continue to create and maintain a dynamic, friendly, amazing site with so many features for both artists and buyers.
