My mom went to Art School and taught me some technic but a lot of my style I developed on my own. My grandpa and his brother were both painters in the San Francisco area and their father was a mural painter in England. In our house, art was just something you did.
I was raised in California and moved to the East Coast in 2001. In 2010, I moved to up-state New York, near the beautiful Finger Lakes. I also have made friends with people all over the world through an Conversational English class at nearby Cornell.
All this influences my painting. I love the wild places near where I live. I love to do portraits of flowers and celebrate the changing seasons.
