Pastel on Paper – 9″ x 12″
I first developed the sketchbook habit as a student of landscape architecture at Rhode Island School of Design in the late 1970s. Subsequently, as a practicing landscape architect, drawing was essential both as a design tool and a means to communicate with clients, but I also sketched for fun, on weekends and vacations.
After joining the faculty of landscape architecture at UC Davis in 1990, I taught landscape architectural drawing and drafting, along with design studios and courses in landscape history. Now retired and living in San Francisco, I have more time to draw and paint and fill sketchbooks at a faster rate. I enjoy working en plein air with pastels and in studio with acrylics and mixed media.
