Watercolors and Sketches
My earliest memory is visiting a cavern, where I saw colors sparkling in the darkest corners and rainbows filling the air. That colorful first impression helped define my life and led me down paths I might never have otherwise taken. My fascination with the interaction of color and light led me to study chemistry and later, take up stained glass. Finally I found watercolors as a way of reflecting the beauty, magic, and light I see all around.
In Cannes, I studied art at the Association des Beaux-Arts, and upon returning to San Francisco, at the College of Marin, and have studied with Cheng-Khee Chee and Tony Couch, both members of the National Watercolor Society. My watercolors are created from on-the-spot sketches, or using models or photos in the studio.
My watercolors have been exhibited in Edmonds, Richmond Beach, Bothell, and Shoreline in Washington; Pacifica and Palo Alto in California; and Valbonne, Grasse, and Antibes in the south of France. Several paintings are in private collections in the United States and France. Click below to go to a page.
