About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist/publisher
Location Arcata, North Coast, CA, United States
Introduction I am very enthusiastic about painting on the iPad. I paint at live music performances, and when I travel I paint what I see, and post the images to facebook as digital postcards. I enjoy teaching iPad painting, and will be teaching it again at Humboldt State University's OLLI program in October, and at the Mendocino Art Center in November. I also give private lessons.
Interests painting, cooking, gardening, languages, creativity, climate change, glaciers, and learning new things, and everything iPad! And long walks on my endless beach.
