Thank you for visiting my website. I am a studio artist located in Ojai, CA, and I make botanical-themed paintings using acrylic or watercolor on board.
My work is inspired by nature and created with imagination. So I go out and observe, sketch and study plants, birds and insects, and take resource photos. Sometimes I'll start a painting on site, and finish it in my studio.
My colors, like nature, are vivid and saturated. I like to add a little element of magic to my work like lights, a feeling of movement, and bird and insect forms.
Through my artwork I want to show the viewer that there is natural beauty all around us, even right out our front door, if we take time to look.
