Artist Statement

I work with all types of water media. Most of my inspiration comes from my love of the outdoors and riding my bicycle. I prefer not to work directly from photos but allow my inspiration to create the image, My work is more about designing than copying. I find working abstractly helps influence most of my more realistic paintings.

I love painting animals and birds and have done many commissions. I usually start by asking for a photo from the owner which they believe captures the essence of their animal.

Most of my larger pieces are done in acrylic on canvas or on wood cradles.

In-person my work can be viewed locally by appointment at Curated Gallery in Santa Cruz or Capitola. I also have small items for sale at The Homeless Garden Store in downtown Santa Cruz.
