Exploring the natural world around me through the medium of oils, pastel & mixed media. A San Jose, California native, I've also lived and painted in Northern California and now enjoy the change of seasons in Minnesota. My plein air and studio work seek out and focus attention on those quiet moments of awe in nature & the beauty of daily life.
