Painting is a tactile experience for me. I enjoy the feeling of moving the paint with a variety of tools and a full range of bold colors. Experimenting to discover different ways to create visual texture is key to my painting.

When I paint, my objective is to catch that place between color field painting and landscape painting. I paint using thin layers of transparent acrylic paint and enjoy using non-traditional painting tools. The marks from those tools reveal the landscape over time.

I moved to Portland, OR in 1996 as a decorative painter from the San Francisco Bay area. Searching for a different style of painting, my work eventually evolved to abstract landscapes. I still use many of the techniques and tools in the decorative painting field which gives my paintings their unique style.
