Welcome to my watercolor website.
I was born and raised in San Francisco and from an early age enjoyed drawing and painting.
I began painting with watercolors on a vacation in 1992.  Hiking in the United States, Europe, New Zealand, Japan, Africa and Asia has inspired me and informed my life.  I enjoy en Plein Air painting the beauty around me and places I’ve been.
