Welcome to my site. I am happy you found me. I paint waves, landscapes and florals. I have been lucky enough to go on seven artist residencies and have shown in museums and galleries. I am grateful for these opportunities and I love to paint in the moment, whether it is in my studio or painting out on location, called plein air.
My last residency was in May of 2021, in Tehachapi, California. It was a combination of an artist residency with the US Forest Service and the Tehachapi Plein Air Invitational. I will be adding paintings as I finish them. Look for them under the heading Tehachapi, starting in December of 2021.
I have been painting for over 30 years. I was classically trained at UC Santa Cruz where I studied sculpture and painting. I continued my studies privately for over five years. That is where I fell in love with painting in plein air and painting with other artists. Plein Air is a french term that simply means painting on location. I like getting the paint down quickly to capture my first impressions.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My inspiration comes from moments that stop me in my tracks. Like seeing waves roll in or coming around a corner to discover flowers on a fence. That excitement is what keeps me painting.
I paint in thin layers of acrylic, making the scene glow. I use painting knives, brushes and observation.
I have shown at the Santa Paula Art Museum, The California Art Club & I current show at Harbor Village Gallery & Gifts Too, in Ventura California. I am a co-host of Plein Air Thursday and I am getting ready for a show in March 2022, all about flowers.
