About The Artist

Artist Statement

I use painting as a means to express my passion for the amazing splendor of the natural world and our shared emotions that connect us to this world.  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 original work was based years of teaching terrestrial and marine biology, and ecology to children and adults. In painting, I attempt to capture the essence, feeling, and atmosphere of landscapes and moments in time we all experience.  I find the painting process enlivening and a constant challenge. I love sharing my art and the process with others.

Biography

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,  Cleveland Art Institute, Anderson Ranch, in Snowmass Colorado, 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.
