Artist Statement 


I am a California-based, self-taught artist specializing in acrylics.  I am mesmerized by the detail and symmetry of the orchards that blanket California’s Central Valley.  I paint on heavy paper and canvas.  The quick-drying and steadfast nature of acrylic allows me to layer to my liking.  Through a vibrant palette, I create depth and an inherent style that is seen throughout my work.  The works of Hockney and O’Keeffe are an inspiration for me.
