About The Artist

Artist Statement

My work is inspired by nature, interpreted through my imagination to evoke a mood or impression that communicates my personal vision. I currently am incorporating bits of gold leaf in select paintings and am experimenting with different surfaces and textures.


Nature, landscape, organic images are themes of my oil paintings. I have lived in some beautiful places that have inspired my art – Santa Barbara, Paris, Mendocino, Squaw Valley, Marin. I have studied art with accomplished artists whose work resonates with me.

I am active in the Marin arts community, have participated in the Marin Open Studios since 2010 and have exhibited extensively in the Bay Area.
