Artist Statement -

AS AN OIL PAINTER, I am inspired by intense color and deep contrast reflected through urban landscapes.

I have a vivid childhood memory of seeing the aurora borealis, like a living creature, twisting over the black winter night sky above my Wisconsin home.

Twenty-five years ago I moved to Southern California. The colossal scale of this city with its fluid light, contrasting landscapes, and passionate mix of cultures moved me to become a visual artist.

Now, using a vibrant palette and expressive brushstrokes, I strive to capture an essence of Southern Calfornia—light, earth and people.
