Working in styles both traditional and visionary, my primary theme is to
express the soul of Nature. I have been painting most of my life. I am a
native Californian and much of my inspiration comes from the beautiful
natural landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area...the woods, the ocean,
the rolling hills, the native wildflowers and wildlife. Even the surreal
tree branches in the Zen series are often taken from the gnarled old
oak trees I see on my walks. Other inspirations include Rumi's poetry, ghosts and the paranormal, books, teapots (I am a
tea addict) and animals, especially cats. Please respect that my artwork is original and copyrighted.
