About me

Introduction I live in Colorado and paint in oils. Though my chosen home is one of the most beautiful places on earth, I am by nature restless so I get inspiration both close to home and in distant travels. I work in an alla prima manner, usually beginning with a warm underpainting and finishing a painting in one session. This method, since I am painting directly into wet paint, allows great flexibility in mixing colors and making soft edges, and fosters a fresh, spontaneous approach to painting. I take a strong interest in the effects of light/shadow and warm/cool colors, and in the interplay between the landscape and its human inhabitants. I paint urban, rural, Mediterranean and coastal landscapes. I paint both in the studio and en plein air.
