I have been an artist for over 40 years. I have an A.A. Degree in Art from El Camino College where I took every art class they had to offer - Ceramics, Photo, Printmaking, Enameling, Graphic Art, Glass Fusion, Acrylic and Watercolor. However, I found my forte in China Painting on Tiles.Of course, I couldn't have chosen a more tedious medium for my art; the tiles must be fired up to twenty times in a kiln. Each firing achieves the next stage of development in the painting, bringing out the depth of color and detail, a little more each time.
In the past I have entered my art in juried shows and consequently have earned 23 awards - six in the 1st Place category, four 2nd Place awards, three 3rd Place and six Honorable Mentions along with four special awards.
