The immediacy and brilliant colors natural to the pastel medium are a perfect fit for the range of emotions and interpretations I seek to bring to life through my subject matter. My still life subject matter tell stories that are exquisitely beautiful, either real or imaginary, always intriguing and many times appeal to my inner child. I work primarily from reality and use digital photography to create compositional elements and overall design. A native Californian and lifelong Bay Area resident, I currently reside with my family in Marin County.

I am currently a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, of the Society of Western Artists, and the Marin Society of Artists.
