Spending my childhood in the Redwoods of Northern California I discovered a deep love for nature. At the age of twelve my family and I moved to the Bay Area. As a young teenager I loved to watch as my grandmother painted at her easel on the back porch of their Walnut Creek home in California. I dreamed of becoming an artist just like my grandmother one day. I took her creative spirit into my heart, and set out to follow my dream. I studied to become a graphic artist and was able to enjoy a long and successful career in the commercial art field. Although, I am primarily a self-taught artist I have recently studied at some of our local Bay Area colleges. I use oil pigment on canvas as well as soft pastels on paper to capture the beauty of nature just as my grandmother did so many years ago. Nature always provides the inspiration, the color and the harmony for each of my paintings. Realizing my dream I am currently exhibiting my paintings in many cities around the Bay Area and Northern California.
