Born in Sacramento, CA

Artist Statement

"Atmospheric landscapes, cloud formations and flower fields inspire me to paint. My compositions are designed in simple color fields, allowing the texture, bold color and application of paint to be the focal elements of my work. I paint primarily with a pallet knife using acrylic and oil paints, sometimes mixing the colors directly on the canvas or wood surface."
