Bio: My paintings reflect my interest the built environment, and the interplay between city life, nature and infrastructure. My work is greatly influenced by my career as a landscape architect, where I learned to appreciate the overlap of history, topography, cultures, and industry that occurs in an urban environment. Responding to certain sites that might otherwise be overlooked, whether industrial areas, old streetcars, or the urban street, I want to capture the appeal and life of these settings with the vibrancy of colors that is my foundation. My paintings are a reflection on the underlying aesthetic of the places we see, and often don't see, in our world.
I majored in Fine Art at Colorado College with an emphasis on landscape painting and earned my Masters in Landscape Architecture at University of California, Berkeley. I studied painting at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts through the Cleveland Institute of Art, in Lacoste, France, at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Aix-en-Provence, France, and at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I have shown my work in France, Colorado and the Bay Area. I am represented at Robert Allen Fine Art in Sausalito, California and William and Joseph Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I currently live and work in San Francisco.
