Artist Statement and Biography
    My home and studio are located in Santa Cruz California which gives me access to the beautiful coastline, vineyards, and close proximity to the snow covered Sierra Mountains.  After moving to Santa Cruz in 1975 I fell in love with our coastal beauty.  I enjoy painting outdoors because of the intensity of color and the added sensations of sound and movement and the ever changing atmospheric conditions. I work in several mediums but primarily in oils when painting on location.  Often the vista view is so panoramic that I will spend several days on location to complete a larger canvas.  My education is ongoing and includes a BFA in Painting from San Jose State University in 1975.
