My focus is plein air landscapes done on location in an impressionist style. I utiliza bold colors and varying textures. The combination helps set a very specific tone and intention for the viewer. I tend to focus on Bay Area scenery, which allows me to bring the beauty of California indoors. I owe this transformation in my style to Brigitte Curt. I have discovered how exciting it is to paint on a small canvas with thick juicy paint and large brush strokes.
On the days' that I can't to make it outdoor, to paint, I work in my studio. For my studio works, I focus primarily on figurative work, mostly animals both wildlife and farm life.
