Artist Statement:

I am a California artist who grew up on those beautiful Southern California beaches. I have also called the visually beautiful urban San Francisco home for many years. I feel at home from one end of this coast to the other and this is reflected in much of the subjects that I choose to paint. Most of my paintings are in two bodies of work: “California Road Trip” and “San Franciscan Urban”. As I am not a realist painter, I look at every blank canvas as an experiment. As a painter I am interested in the abstraction of the familiar, what we pass everyday and take for granted. For me, it is never about an exact representation, it is always about the “what if” and the colors that “could be”. Much of my ongoing work is an experiment in and for the love of color.
