Happy Holidays to everyone!  Here are a few new paintings, and I hope to do a few more posts before the year is out. I am now a member of 3 Art organizations: Los Gatos Art Association, Triton Museum, and North Tahoe Arts.

As we approach the end of the year I feel I am gaining great momentum with my paintings: Plein Air oils, Studio oils, and Watercolors. . I attended the week long Plein Air Convention in Monterey, and displayed a painting. I painted as a participant at the week long North Tahoe Plein Air event creating and displaying 5 paintings, and exhibited another 3 paintings in their gallery. I also have a studio oil painting in the LGAA  annual show. What fun !

Travels to Virginia, the Grand Tetons, central Wyoming, San Diego, Tahoe and Oregon have provided plenty of material..  See new updates on the Plein Air page and the Photography page.  Also, I have received a business license and am now selling paintings !

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I have a minor in Visual Arts from UCSD where I received my BA in Biology. I am inspired by Nature and love hiking in California's Sierra Nevada and diving beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. I enjoy the interplay of painting Plein Air, being an outdoor photographer, and creating paintings in the studio.
