In my artwork I use the subject matter of landscape, cityscape, figure and still life to convey the drama and beauty I find around me. I’m particularly inspired by how light and shadow, touching upon ordinary scenes transforms and infuses them with energy and emotion. I seek to communicate these qualities through the use of paint.
I’ve painted all my life, studying in my teen years at Art Students League in New York City and as an adult at City College in San Francisco, University of California at Berkeley and privately with a number of fine painters.
I work out of my studio at Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco and teach both studio and plein air painting privately. I exhibit my artwork at various galleries throughout the area.
