About The Artist

Artist Statement

My canvases are a window into real and imagined places that I create through the use of color, composition, texture and design. Much of my work was based years of teaching ecology and my passion for landscapes and our natural world. In painting, I attempt to capture the essence, and atmosphere of places and moments in time when we experience a sense of awe. Most of my work is done with oil paints, however, experimenting with many different types of medium and incorporating material into my artwork keeps the process alive, joyful and  challenge.


I have always been a keen observer of our natural world. This fascination led me into a life of teaching sciences: biology,  ecology, and conservation to children and adults through various educational institutions. I moved from the deep woods of Ohio, to the deserts of Arizona, to the alpine meadows of Colorado and the Sierras and eventually landed in beautiful Marin county, in Northern California where I have lived for the past 40 years. I have studied art at the San Francisco Art Institute, UC Berkeley,  Colorado College, The Cleveland Art Institute, and College of Marin. My primary teacher and major influences has been 10+ years of instruction under Chester Arnold a contemporary  landscape artist based in Sonoma, California.   I have award winning paintings in private and corporate collections and have participated in many juried shows and in galleries and museums.

I have been making images all my life through a wide variety of techniques and mediums. For the last 18 years I have focused on drawing and oil painting under the contemporary realist painter Chester Arnold. I have taken multiple art classes from many institutions including the San Francisco Art Institute, UC Berkley, The San Francisco Academy of Sciences, College of Marin, O’Hanlin Art Center and through the ICB Art community. In addition I have studied on line classes with artists most recently with Nicholas Wilton and Art2Life community.
