I am a community artist and have contributed to the Bay Area cultural landscape for over thirty years. I am interested in the role of art in people's lives, and informal learning. My current focus is public art, photography, and art education. I have painted over 40 murals since joining the Community Mural Movement in 1978. My mural partnership Fresco (1990-98), with legendary muralist Raymond Patlán, produced over 20 murals for cities, museums, school districts, universities, corporations, unions and commercial businesses. Through informal education, I bridged community work with museums and public education. From 1990-2007, I devoted myself to museums, as the Director of Education at the Museum of the African Diaspora (2006-2007) and before that at SFMOMA (1990-2006) where I severed in several educational appointments. In addition I worked for numerous other Bay Area museums and alternative art organizations, as an independent curator and artist. Further I was a teaching artist for the VALUES Project (2003-2006) - a collaboration between the California College of Arts, the Alameda County Office of Education and Harvard University's Project Zero. I currently teach in the School of Education at Mills College. My artworks are in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco's Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and the San Francisco Arts Commission public art collection.
