Inspiration

From an early age, I was inspired by the natural beauty of my native California.

This inspiration evoked a need in me to express myself through art and painting.  As my interest in art grew my paintings were further inspired by my studies of the great masters of the Renaissance, Impressionism and Expressionism.  I paint from both life and my imagination, striving to create a balance between natural reality and the ideal.

For me, art is an emotional and visual language that initiates a dialogue between painter and viewer. My paintings are a reflection of my love of nature and I hope they speak to my viewers in a way that helps them focus on the beauty and generosity that exists  in our world.  Please take a moment to celebrate that beauty with me and experience a moment of peace.

Thank you for taking the journey with me.
