I have a great time painting. I hope this joy in creating something out of an idea and paint is obvious in the finished product.
I really love unwrapping a new blank canvas. I even like the smell. It is my opportunity to create something totally unique. I work in acrylics because there is very little drying time so I can paint all day when I get motivated. I work with organic pigments because the colors are vibrant and true.
I have a deep appreciation for the outdoors. We live in the hills above Napa, California. The constantly changing colors and the beauty of the wine country are my inspiration.
I have exhibited at numerous venues including solo shows at Alpha Omega Winery in St. Helena, Walt Winery in Sonoma, Keever Vineyards in Yountville, The Eye Specialists Offices, Gallery Napa Valley, juried shows in Yountville, Calistoga, Napa and Napa Valley Open Studios.
Some of my work can currently be seen at Keever Vineyards in Yountville and at my home studio. Upcoming shows include Jessel Gallery in October, 2018, The Eye Specialists Offices in November 2018, and the Napa County Library in June 2019. I also happily do commissions.
