I live, paint and teach landscape painting at the same place --at 900' with open views in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Familiarity breeds connection and for me, the intimate and daily exposure to this land has bred an interest in capturing its essence. I have shown my work at the Center for Visual Arts for the SJ Art League, Tait Museum in Los Gatos, Triton Museum in Santa Clara, and many others. I hold an annual show at my own elegant studio/gallery in La Honda. I show currently at Gallerie Amsterdam, Carmel, and at St. Michael's Alley, Palo Alto.
