Artist Statement

My paintings and drawings reflect my love of nature. With a close observation of bark, of moss, and the sun reflecting magically on the Laguna, my paint brush, my palette knife, and my pencil go into an energetic frenzy! Clouds reflecting on the Laguna or Tomales Bay change every minute in form and color, changing from translucent to opaque in storms. These ever-changing skies often determine the moods of my paintings.
