I began painting 20 years ago; it is my passion. I paint outdoors every week and produce miniatures. Typically, 5 x 7” to 11 x 14”. I do studio paintings from photos and use the miniatures for reference. I do these locally in California, also while traveling especially in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. I paint outdoors (plein air) weekly in the Monterey Bay area and California and during my travels. Most of my small paintings are plein air. I travel to countries that present a background of marvelous architecture and scenery plus the added attraction of wonderfully friendly, attractive people in native costume. I am now combining portraiture with subjects photographed or sketched while traveling. Many of my landscapes are miniatures done plein air (on site) although I work large, so far up to 4’ x 5’. I do a limited number of commission portraits as well as large figurative and landscape paintings, street, and interior scenes. I donate paintings for fund raising for the Santa Cruz Symphony and others.
I have studied with many fabulous artists without whom I would never have been able to accomplish and learn what I have. Those teachers and mentors include but are not limited to: Brian Blood, Gill Dillinger, Ned Mueller, Brad Roberts, Mark Farina and many others.
