I fell in love with 'plein air' painting because it allowed me to be in beautiful places and to focus on the moment. I strive to have the viewer want to be in that place in the painting and so I tend to paint vignettes instead of vast panoramas.
I have been exhibiting award-winning pastel and oil paintings since 2002. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, I am a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association. My work is exhibited in major art festivals in southern California and continuously at Gallery Los Olivos in Los Olivos.
