Oil Painting, Mixed Media


I paint in oils, primarily large-scale landscapes that take their inspiration from California’s wild and rugged North Coast. Thanks to its relative isolation, the North Coast is one of those special places that still embodies the mythic West: Vast open spaces, austere beauty, and a mercurial Mother Nature. 

After earning a degree in art history from Swarthmore College, I lived and worked on the East Coast for many years before moving to the Bay Area. I feel very fortunate to now be able to paint full-time. I also sit on the board of the North Coast Artists Guild, an organization that promotes the work of local artists.


My studio is open year-round by appointment and for the annual Studio Discovery Tour. It’s a lovely spot to take in the ocean view during your drive along the coast.
