I am an oil painter based in San Diego, California. After a long and rewarding career in higher education, I am finally pursuing my lifetime dream of making art the center of my life.  

My goal as an artist is to produce landscape paintings that capture a “sense of place.”  The subjects of most of my paintings are locations that I love deeply: the Sierra Nevada mountains, Southern California deserts, and of course the California coastline.  I’m guided by the feelings these places evoke in me – the grandeur of the desert, the fresh glory of waves against the shore, the joyful peace of a Sierra stream.  Hopefully my paintings evoke something similar in those who see them.

My paintings are on display at Southwestern Artists Association, Studio 23, Spanish Village, Art Center Balboa Park, San Diego. https://swartists.com/
