I was raised amid New Hampshire’s seacoast and mountains. My travels have taken me to Alaska, Mexico and as far east as Kyoto, city of temples. Self-taught, I work primarily with forms from the natural world to create visual spaces of harmony: animals, plants, water, sand. I strive to convey the grace, strength, and fragility of life, as well as its lush vitality. My portfolio contains both representational and abstract works. I merge realism with slightly fantastical elements, and the concepts of beauty and playfulness are very important to me in my work. My paintings are meant to create a space of refuge for the viewer. Home now is San Francisco, where I can be found climbing hills, walking along the coastal cliffs, and painting in the amazing light. My work is in corporate and private collections worldwide, and shown in national galleries. I love what I do, and it’s my great pleasure to share it with you!
