As a child gazing into the dreamy landscapes painted by a favorite aunt, I decided early on that I wanted to explore painting with oils! Although raising a family and a career slowed this goal down a bit, I continued to pursue lifelong dreams and began to paint.
A career brought me to what became my second love……The Central Coast of California! I planted roots, worked hard, painted when time permitted and raised a family.
I’ve been a resident of the Central Coast for over 35 years and paint whenever there is a spare moment! I’m plein air trained, yet still love to work from my studio. I’m a member of the Portrait Society of America and Oil Painters of America. I currently serve on the Morro Bay Art Association Board of Directors as President.
I’m intrigued by the essence of light, the luminosity of color, the expression of a face, a warm gentle breeze, the smell of citrus and salty ocean air. My style is representational, utilizing a glazing technique of many thin layers of oil paint to create a translucent effect that provides depth and emanates light from my paintings.
I am happy to work on commission projects to include portraits or something special for your office and home. Orders can be taken by clicking here or by phone 805-423-1100. Please leave a message I am usually creating! I will return your call as soon as practical.
