About Me

My Background

My mother provided me with art supplies at an early age. I started painting at two years old and have been passionate about art ever since. After receiving various awards and recognition, I got serious about painting seascapes and displaying my creations.

My Medium

I primarily use oil paint on canvas or board. I enjoy creating smaller sized paintings plein air and larger sizes in my studio. Occasionally I will experiment with other mediums such as watercolor, acrylic, pastel, ink, charcoal, and clay. 

My Inspiration

Growing up in Santa Barbara, I was fortunate enough to spend most of my childhood playing at the beach. This wonderful intersection of land and water has given me a deep appreciation of the natural world we live in. The beauty of the coast is my inspiration.
