I am an artist in San Francisco Bay Area. In my work I combine a love for color with a skill for observation, as well as years of training in classical drawing and human anatomy.
I mostly enjoy working from life, and appreciate the immediacy of alla prima technique. I find it especially magical when painting people, as it allows the artist to connect deeply with the beauty of the person so vividly present in front of them. I also paint animals, and nothing gives me more joy than capturing that special facial expression of a dog. I work in oil on canvas, board, and sometimes even paper.
