I moved from to Grants Pass from Bakersfield CA. in 2012. Grants Pass has an inviting vibe and a welcoming art community. It's been fun and fulfilling to paint and draw here. My artwork is the result of figure drawing in the open studio program at the Grants Pass Museum of Art, painting with the Brushstrokers group of GP, and coursework from the San Jose University and Cal St. University Bakersfield.
