I grew up in the Santa Monica mountains near what is now called Pt. Mugu State Park. It was an experience which endeared me to the great outdoors.

My style displays an economy of brushwork, where the viewer has more leeway to interpret shape, color and texture (a la Impressionism!).

I make art because it’s the most efficient way I’ve found to feel like I’ve worked at something worthwhile, and I find painting is a great way to quiet the mind.

Recently I’ve also started logging small sketches that I come up with , usually while outdoors.  To see those click here.
