I am an artist and art teacher, which represents two of my life-time
passion: art and teaching. I may be classified as a painter, yet my
artistic interests go beyond painting. In fact, my artistic career started
as a costume designer for Yale Repertory Theater. Despite having
enjoyed my job and company there very much, I was driven by an
inner urge to paint, and the urge brought me to California, New
Mexico, Maui, and even to seemingly far-from-artistic places such as
Iowa, Minnesota, and South Korea. And coming full circle, I live now
in Los Angeles.
Through the journey, I painted and painted and painted,
dotted by occasional shows and "art parties." My works
have been bought by diverse clientele, ending up not only in
the U.S. but Scandinavia, Australia, Italy, and South Korea.
Specifically, you can find my works at either Mindful Nest
gallery in Burbank/Santa Monica, CA, or Three Ravens
gallery in Ardmore, PA.
|Pursuing the other side of my passion, I have been teaching children art ¾ how to draw
realistically and paint in oil ¾ as a program director of Mission Renaissance, a private art school
headquartered in Glendale, CA, for four years.
It is said that teaching is the best of learning, and I completely
agree; teaching children not only gives me fulfilling satisfaction but
matures me as an artist as well.

is essentially ineffable, but risking oversimplification, I will say that
simplicity and playfulness are two targets I set in my artistic
