Biography


Biography:
          A native Californian, I graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Biology.  A research technician turned full time painter, I try and balance a passion for color with a lifelong love of animals and water themes. I am  inspired by bold color and dynamic brushwork over a strong silhouette and delight in capturing the small moments and quirkier side of life.
           Major influences include John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Rosa Bonheur, Anders Zorn, Steve Huston,  Lucy Kemp-Welch , Jill Soukup and the modern Urban Sketchers movement.
