I love the use of vibrant color and line work in my art and you will see these dominant elements of design in most of my pieces.
I hope to capture the energy and joy of a subject and not just the photo representation.
I enjoy experimenting with new colors and textures and breaking away from the norm.
In my abstract pieces, I encourage viewers to find their own imagery and interpretation within the piece.
I use all types of water media in my art and since 2014 and moving to Santa Cruz I have enjoyed working with Encaustic and oils to create new and exciting pieces.
I exhibit my work at many local venues and juried shows and have won awards for my art.
Since 2005 I have participated in Silicon Valley Open Studios. Now living in Santa Cruz since 2013 I participate in Santa Cruz Open Studios and last year The Capitola Art and Wine Festival.
I have published work in the Strokes Of Genius books volumes one and four.
I enjoy doing animal portraits mainly of cats and dogs.
