San Rafael, CA
I paint what I love in an effort to share and make the world a more beautiful place.
I am a native North Beach San Franciscan raised in Marin County in an Italian family. I love art, the outdoors, gardening, and sports.
I am married to the love of my life and raised three wonderful children while working in SF law enforcement for 33 years.
In retirement, I have enjoyed exploring my true passions. I enrolled in a variety of art classes at College of Marin and private lessons. My interests are in realism, expressionism and abstract.
Currently, I am painting sunflowers, but also enjoy painting landscapes, still life, and hands. I do consignment paintings upon request.
My favorite artists are Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh and Chester Arnold with whom I have had the pleasure of learning from at College of Marin. Much inspiration has been explored while visiting many museums and galleries in Europe and Asia.
Recently, my artwork has been shown at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes, The Laurence Gallery in Occidental, College of Marin student art show, Marin County fair art show, Sebastopol Center fro the arts, Trek winery in Novato, Juice Girl in Mill Valley (currently) and various juried shows at the Marin Society of Artists. I am a member of the Marin Society of Artists located at 1515 3rd St San Rafael.
