My landscape paintings merge traditional and modern stylistic approaches to create colorful vistas of California's coast. My bold colors are partly attributed to making my own oil paints from non-toxic earth pigments. Stylistically, I am best known for creating unique, vivid compositions using line and texture to capture the wild coastal regions of California. I was born and raised in southern California and I previously lived in Big Sur. I currently reside in Santa Cruz, California. My hope is that my artwork captures the adventurous spirit of traveling and exploring in nature.
