I paint in several styles – I prefer to not confine myself to one genre as I always have ideas and inspirations across the board. Therefore I am equally happy painting wildlife and pets, still life, and landscapes.
Most of my landscape ideas come out of my memory bank, they do not really represent any one area, except on the occasions when I am particularly struck with the scenes I see on my journeys. I have many objects that I use to paint still life pictures, and frequently I will paint a series with a subject matter, such as authors or historical figures. Wildlife paintings are a result of traveling to various locations to take good photos and make sketches, which I use later in the studio. Pet commissions are fun because I spend time with the pet and get to know its habits and expressions.
I am blessed to live in Sonoma, CA, a beautiful town in wine country where there is a thriving and supportive art community. I challenge myself every day to conquer something a bit more difficult, and frequently I have many surprises at the end of the day.
I hope you will enjoy looking at my work, and please feel free to call me if you have any questions. Studio visits are also available by appointment.
