Growing up in Big Sur inspired me to paint what I love and understand.
Both of my parents were professional artists. My five siblings and I were free to explore our incredible surroundings, so it was only natural that I would become an artist.
I paint with oils and palette knife. Painting alla prima and “painting without fear,” I like to capture the immediacy of the moment. In my experience, most truth and artistry in painting lies in its inherent spontaneity.
My art is essentially an attempt to communicate the beauty and joy of nature through the use of color and texture. My joy comes from the creative process of painting.
