About the Artist

I was born and raised in southern California when it was becoming too crowded. Daytrips up to nearby mountains and forests when I was a child impressed upon me a love of landscape, untutored and unfettered. Although I sometimes now paint still life or people, my primary fascination is with landscape which lends itself to either acrylic or to watercolor.

About the Work

Working from my own photos, I work to capture the spiritual experience of a landscape. I usually work in a representational style even when I pour paint on the canvas or paper, then I add touches of metallic paint and/or mica flake gel to indicate the presence of God.
