A California native based in Monterey, I am a contemporary landscape painter. I find inspiration in the natural beauty that surrounds me. My work is an exploration of the diverse landscapes that define this remarkable state—from the rugged coastline and the rolling hills to beautiful parks and hidden gardens.

Capturing the essence of landscapes is more than a creative endeavor; it's a way to convey the unique light that bathes each image in saturated colors and joy. Through my art, I strive to evoke a sense of place, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in these scenes so they can sense the crunch of gravel walking along a garden path or the breeze coming over the dunes at the coast.

My technique blends traditional methods with a contemporary perspective, allowing me to interpret familiar vistas in new and unexpected ways. By emphasizing color, layers of soft, sumptuous textures, and the interplay of light and shadow, I aim to convey not just what is seen but also what is felt—an emotional response to the environment and places that have shaped my artistic vision.

In a world often marked by rapid change, my paintings capture the enduring beauty of California's landscapes and beyond, celebrating the timeless allure of nature and reminding us to pause and enjoy the beauty around us.
