I am an artist based in San Francisco Bay Area. My art is heavily focused on urban and rural and landscapes. Most works are Plein Air while others are done in the studio based on the pictures I have taken. While seemingly at odds with each other, I am equally fascinated by the energy of the cities and the tranquility of rural landscapes. Both give me plenty of opportunities to explore the full spectrum of human experience. I work primarily in Watercolor, and Oil and I am constantly learning new approaches and techniques - I strive to develop my paintings to speak the beauty that I see in diverse landscapes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
