I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Chico State, with an emphasis in painting and drawing. It was there that I did some of my first outdoor paintings in “Plein Air”.

I have always been inspired by nature, as it gives us so much to see and explore. I enjoy its color, light, design and rhythms as inspiration for my works. I combine these elements to do both Plein Air and Studio paintings. Once you learn the technical skills then the passion can truly come forward. It’s this passion that drives and excites me as my journey as a Plein Air painter continues.
