I have been living and painting in Santa Barbara for the past 25 years.    Organic forms and studies of botanic and ocean life are prevalent in my most recent work.  I am exploring the different compositions of water, kelp, and sea life.  These organic shapes and patterns are diverse, intriguing, and beautiful.  I am moved by their simplicity and their complexity.  My earthy and watery palette is inspired by these forms and is full of rich greens, blues, yellows, and browns.  I paint with oil and graphite on wood panels so I can scratch and sand the surface as I paint for a many-layered finish.
