Hello, and welcome to my site! While this site is mainly about sharing the creative path of an artist, ultimately, I hope to inspire you to deepen your connection to the natural world through art and creativity. I enjoy sharing the wild beauty of where I am so fortunate to live. I truly believe that we humans belong to nature and that it is vital that we get outside to maintain our connection, wherever one may live.
I am a mid-life oil painter living on the Northern Oregon Coast. I love the outdoors and I get out everyday to walk, paint, or just plain breathe. I live a creative life as an artist, musician, gardener, nature lover, environmentalist, builder, tinkerer, destroyer. I paint coastal landscapes, seascapes, flora and fauna, with the occasional still life thrown in.
