I was born and raised in the Sierra Foothills and I’ve been drawing and painting
since I was a child. Art is a refuge for expressing my emotions and a means of capturing the beauty I find around me.
My work reflects my wonder and fascination with nature and animals; they are
an endless source of inspiration. Painting another living being is an opportunity
to take a step back and carefully observe and document the details that make
up an individual.
I strive to make each portrait unique with the use of vibrant, rich colors.
The mediums I work with are oil paints on canvas, acrylic paints on canvas,
mixed media and charcoal and pencil on paper.
