About The Artist
Hi All, I’m a California landscape painter working in oils. I work primarily in Plein air approach on square formats. I also love conveying mystery and whimsy and often paint birds, rabbits, cats, and dogs at play. I am drawn to the coastal hills and majestic oaks and have spent a lot of time out in Point Reyes over the pandemic. Paths are also a favorite theme.
The more whimsical works draw from inspiring moments of insight found in the relationship between humans and nature. Finding the steepness of a cliff, the curve of a branch, or a community of wintering birds notable.
The acceleration of our changing landscape is a constant confrontation and I hope to express our collective connection in an ever-changing and altering earth.
30+ years oil painting, graduate UCD studied under Wayne Theibaud.
