My paintings are translations of the dynamic, lyrical, real and abstract qualities, which I observe in the unending variety of shapes, colors and textures found in the landscape. They are recreations of a specific moment in time in which light, atmosphere, earth and sky come together in celebration of the simple and profound beauty of nature. I endeavor to instill a sense of immediacy and totally engage the viewer.
The unique character of California and specifically Napa Valley landscapes have been subjects of many of my paintings since moving from the Midwest to Napa in 1977. Over the years my work has been represented in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Boston. My works are displayed in public and private collections worldwide.
