The world is full of vibrant colors and bright hues. As a person and as an artist, I am drawn to color. California’s colorful landscapes from the water’s edge to mountaintops are a constant source of my artistic inspirations.
As a resident artist of California, I gravitate towards painting nearby coastal scenes and landscapes from National Parks. While most of my paintings are studio based, I also paint plein air whenever possible. I am also an avid traveller and photographer and spend significant amount of time photographing the beautiful landscapes during my travel. My photos often serve as scenic reminders of the places I visit and later become subjects for my studio paintings. When I am not traveling, you will frequently find me painting the colorful flowers and critters from my garden. Painting has always been a form of escape for me. It gives me a sense of joy, peace, hope and a welcome break from the daily commotion of our busy lives. Through these impressionistic paintings, I hope to capture the spirit and beauty of the scene with vivid colors and textures.
