As a former still life photographer, I have evolved into a still life painter, painting from life. I enjoy the entire process working in my small northern California studio.

I have a great curiosity which is why I now work in oils ~ there is always something new to learn. Pairing something vintage with something fresh has great appeal to me.

Judge's Comment: “The artist’s ‘alla prima’ technique, applying color directly to canvas from a life study, lends itself well to the goal of depicting a natural garden. There’s a sense of balanced spontaneity throughout. Painterly texture with pleasing color harmony and the illusion of floral elements emerging up from the canvas is both delightful and engaging.”
