I have been talking quite a lot recently with the artist and educator, Nancy Yaki. Our conversations have been all over and ‘line quality’ has been covered, a topic relevant to both of us.

Recent Sights in Central California

I recently visited the Santa Barbara zoo with a few new friends. I have been impressed with Jun-Pierre Shiozawa’s recent work, enough so to begin my our studies of animals. I do not know where these studies will go. For now, I am simply amazed by the range of beautiful and bizarre creatures that inhabit this earth, well, the S.B. zoo.

I have learned that penguins are VERY funny animals.

I am now living in ranch country and have begun drawing and painting horses. I have wanted to study horses for years now and finally, this seems to be the right time to do it. I have so much to learn about them.

Here are a few of my colleagues at the Dunn School.
