Born and raised in Southern California, I discovered a love of drawing later in life and then moved on to painting in watercolor, acrylic and, ultimately, oil. I normally paint alla prima (all in one sitting) and try to capture the emotion I feel when viewing and/or painting a particular subject matter. My goal is to convey that feeling to the viewer. I love color and loose brushstrokes. I enjoy painting landscapes, still lifes and figures.
Artists I have studied with: Peggi Kroll Roberts, Robin Hall, Jane Hill and Catherine Grawin.
