2017 Resume

PERMANENT COLLECTIONS & GALLERY REPRESENTATION 

  • Triton Museum of ArtSanta Clara, CA
    The Triton Museum of Art has been a champion of my work since 2008.  I was invited to be part of a show called “Watercolor: A Bay Area Focus” and the relationship blossomed from there.  I was honored that they chose “The Hitchhiker” for their permanent collection.  Over the years I’ve participated in many events and was offered a teaching position.  I am so grateful that this organization believes in me and supports me fully in my artistic career.
