Mill Valley, CA

As I went through life at some point I started asking myself the question, "What would a painting look like if I painted it while I was really emotional like sad or mad?" Eventually I picked up a brush; I haven't been able to set it down since. While I've been fortunate to sell paintings, that's not why I paint. I paint because time stops when I paint. It's truly gratifying to have somebody take a painting and put it in their living room and make it a part of their lives. I get great honest feedback from people as I progress through this process. I also like the idea of leaving something behind after I'm gone. If you think this is something you would like do call me, I'd be happy to get you started!

I am a 47-year-old Mill Valley native, an avid outdoorsman, and spend most of my time painting, fly-fishing, surfing, and spending time with friends, family and my yellow lab, Seamus.

I have been painting abstract oil paintings for about three or four years. I started out taking painting classes at College of Marin and continue to be inspired by landscape and representational and portraiture painters, honing my skills further as an abstract painter.

I continue to be inspired by many artists. Starting with some of the Bay Area Figurative Artists painters: David park, Elmer Bischoff, Richard Diebenkorn, and then painters of the past as Albert Gleizes, Edgar Degass and Pablo Picasso just to name a bare few.
