Painting is a very expressive experience for me. Beauty inspires me, and I enjoy sharing my love of art with others. I find painting from life to be exciting, dynamic, and challenging! In September 2001, during the MFA program at the Academy of Art University I began working more in oils.
Using the palette of the great impressionists and their techniques, I painted in Carmel with landscape artist Brian Blood for my thesis project. I received my MFA in painting in December 2005, and currently teach classes privately and exhibit my work in galleries throughout the Bay Area and Carmel.
