Welcome!



I love working from life, but reality is just a jumping-off point for me. The essence of the scene inspires my initial drawing, and then I take the design in exciting new directions with energized color, dancing shapes and rhythmic patterns. Unfolding with a life of its own, each new painting is a joyful exploration!

Silos

Massive concrete silos stand guard over Benicia's bustling port scene. On the day I was there two huge cargo ships were unloading a flock of shiny new cars. This painting will be part of the "Paint the Town" exhibit featured at Benicia City Hall through mid-July.

Bridge Vista

I love the complex structures that weave through the Benicia Bridge, spanning the Carquinez Strait in the San Francisco Bay Area. This painting will be part of the "Paint the Town" exhibit opening April 24 at Benicia City Hall and running through mid-July.

Orbs

These huge, spherical tanks are part of the Valero oil refinery complex in Benicia, California. I was struck by their strange, sculptural beauty and the eerie, sci-fi quality of the setting.

This painting will be part of the "Paint the Town" exhibit that will be featured at Benicia City Hall April 24 through mid-July.
