Heath at Donnor Lake

About

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.  And I enjoy working larger, en plein air, with watercolors and pastels.

I sometimes post sketches of Golden Gate Park on my blog:
