Composition and color are the driving forces in my oil paintings. Looking through my eyelashes and out the corners of my eyes to simplify shapes and colors, I work from life whenever possible. I strive to capture light and atmosphere - a representational impression and my emotional response to the setting and the subject, whether it is plein air landscape, studio still life or portraiture.
I paint primarily outdoors, close to my San Francisco Bay Area home, or in my studio in the Sonoma Valley Wine Country which is open for visits by appointment.
