I am an abstract painter living in Mill Valley, California. My studio is in the historic ICB Building in Sausalito. Inspirations are drawn from natural elements, travel and all types of design. I strive to convey a balance of energy and calm in my paintings.




My paintings are layered and built over periods of time. Beginning with an idea or palette in mind, acrylics are applied, then scraped, sanded and layered to create the final image. Textures, patterns, and loose brushstrokes create an environment which is something to look at and look through. The surfaces reveal images, colors and shapes which explore suggestions of memories. More specifically, I have begun to use ideas of windows, doors, water and shapes in repetition as a way of exploring past, present and future memories. For me, it is a way of exploring what I am thinking about and what I remember.
