Oil and Watercolor Painting
I study light, color, form, and energy. I paint plein air, and these studies are the starting point for more involved studio works. I often present the human imprint on "natural settings", including wharfs, formed ponds, and telephone poles. I paint the edge of man's world where it meets untouched beauty.
I was raised in Santa Barbara, received a BFA from the University of Washington, and spent an additional three years studying at Art Center College of Design. The next twenty years were consumed with raising my son and running a silkscreen and manufacturing business. I am now painting full time.
