About The Artist

Artist Statement

My passion as a California plein air colorist is to express how conditions of light transform colors of the waterfront and vineyards. On the coast near my longtime Sausalito studio I explore special times of the day when waves, clouds, and atmosphere create visual drama. I use layers of oil paint washes under thick brush strokes. My intention is to find places that have physical beauty, but also totemic value, a certain wildness, that tell the essence and story of California.
