I grew up in a family where creativity was like breathing. Both of my parents were artists and my two siblings and I have always followed a creative path as well. I have been painting for many years, first working with oils and later venturing into acrylics, watercolor and pastels. While I am comfortable painting on canvas, paper, or walls (as in the case of murals), many of my pieces are created on found materials, including used wood, driftwood, rocks, shells, and even eucalyptus bark. My work primarily reflects my love of nature. My paintings are comprised primarily of Central California landscapes and fauna, with a special focus on wildflowers and birds in the region. My work can be seen in the Gallery at Marina Square (Morro Bay), the San Luis Obispo County Open Studios Tour (October) and the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival (January).
