As a child I spent a lot of time outside in the rolling hills of Simi Valley, California. I would doodle and sketch on book covers (sometimes the books themselves!) Now I’ve found a way though painting to express my appreciation for the life and the colors that nature gives us.

Currently I am working on a “Cloisonnist” style of painting that better fits the acrylic medium I use. I first block in the painting using complementary colors. Then I use a black line to separate the shapes (cloison means container in French.) Then I paint color pure from the tube into the shapes or containers – not minding if some of the color below peeks through.

“I paint what I see because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

Please contact me if you have any questions or requests.
