I love living a life with a sense of awe and mindfulness. I hope my paintings bring a bit of wonder and pleasure to your own space.
I am fortunate to have grown up in a family of artists. My earliest happy recollections were in the sun-drenched atelier of my grandfather. My great aunt in Vienna was a highly regarded and collected oil painter.
I work in-studio as well as plein air in oil paint, primarily on linen or canvas, and watercolor.
