Painting, for me, is not a choice but rather a way of life. My path has led me to know that seeing, and then translating what I see, is the real “truth” in my painting. I want to capture the moment, the atmosphere, the wind and what it is that takes my breath away when I experience that first glimmer of light on the landscape with my first glance. Water next to land, especially attracts that “first” love of sight… but it is all beautiful and, I am especially grateful to live here, surrounded by all we see.
What I truly love is to paint from life…. whether that be landscape (en plain air) or the figure/portrait in the studio or in natural light.
Being born and raised in Marin County has left an indelible impression on me that remain always in my mind’s eye. All of the elements of nature, as well as man’s imprint, converge in the San Francisco Bay Area and inspire a never-ending source of beauty that takes me near and far away.
