Nature is my source for endless subjects, from simple forms to complex patterns it is always compelling. It is abstract and exotic, with repetition of shapes and patterns, the interplay of light and shadow along with the amazing range of colors. I am pleased to share my interpretation of the beauty we have around us. "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." Aristotle
I believe everyone should own original art. Art is a story, an inspiration, a feeling or emotion that we all relate to in our own individual way. I pick particular views based on how they affect me. Often it's how light and shadows create shapes and images, sometimes it's the beauty of looking at things close-up, or the repetition of shapes or lines that create a pattern. I paint with acrylic paints, I actually like that they dry fast, it keeps the color fresh and I can build the painting with layers. I mainly paint botanicals and landscapes but I also paint figures, portraits and whatever inspires me.
I began my study of art as a teen at Rocky Mountain School of Art, then at Colorado State University and received my BFA from California College of Arts in Oakland, CA.
