I never look at anything that interests me
without wondering if I could make a nice painting of it. The
wonderful things that light does to ordinary objects fascinates me:
the sun shining on a flower petal, the glacier blue at the top of a
wave, the dappled road as the sunlight filters through the trees. I
love color and revel in the changing seasons in the wine country
where I live.
I have studied art almost non-stop for the last 30 years in school
and with classes and workshops and for a few years at the wonderful
California Art Institute with teachers like Neil Boyle, Bobbie
Molene Kramer and Fred Fixler.
Besides painting I have written, illustrated, and published 4
children’s books and 3 cookbooks and have done album covers,
corporate logos etc.
