I have always enjoyed sketching and etching with pen and Ink. One of my earlier classes in Photography and Printing at S.F. City College was fun and inspirational. A fellow student and I created sketches of the Japanese Tea Garden in S.F. G.G. Park. We then arranged the basic printing layout, inserted the sketches and wrote descriptions of each one. We then printed and made brochures. We then sold brochures to the Japanese Tea Garden to be used for tourist help guide. This was my start in the Printing Arena. I worked in the Printing trade until my retirement in 2008.
Since retirement I’ve been sketching and painting and exploring the Art Communities and Galleries.
