About the artist
I was in raised amid New Hampshire’s seacoast and mountains. My travels have taken me to Alaska, Mexico and as far east as Kyoto, city of temples.
Self-taught, I work primarily with forms from the natural world to create visual spaces of harmony: animals, plants, water, sand. I strive to convey the grace, strength, and fragility of life, as well as its lush vitality.
My portfolio contains both representational and abstract works. I merge realism with slightly fantastical elements, and the concepts of beauty and playfulness are very important to me in my work. My paintings are meant to create a space of refuge for the viewer.
Home now is San Francisco, where I can be found climbing hills, walking along the coastal cliffs, and painting in the amazing light. My work is held in corporate and private collections worldwide and shown in national galleries. I love what I do, and it’s my great pleasure to share it with you!
