What I paint depends on my heart and mood. I paint in bold colors however the intensity varies from season to season. I do a lot of acrylics and water colors and absolutely love painting “Plein-air”, which is outside in my yard, near my picturesque flowers, birds, and vegetable garden. It’s extremely inspiring, stimulating and uplifting. Wherever I travel, I do photography, and paint. When I paint I wholeheartedly put my entire soul and being into my work. My art is me, and explains me. It may also speak to others. I hope it will. My family are in some of my paintings. My hope is for each and every person to realize they can make a positive difference. Most of us believe we can’t make an impact because we are just one person but any one of us can change the world for the better.
I work in a variety of mediums, having won awards for landscapes in watercolor and oil. I exhibited in the Kensington Gallery in Campbell, CA before moving to Placer County. I also teach, offering private and semi-private art instruction. Just lately, I’ve been doing a lot of life drawing at the Sacramento Fine Arts center and fiber arts.
