Welcome to my site
Living for many years in Placerville, CA provided me with years of painting the Gold Country of
California; which are represented by many of the paintings on this site. However since moving to
Sisters Oregon in May of 2014 most of my time is now spent painting the beauty of the Cascades,
or my new hometown of Sisters. I consider myself to be very fortunate to be so close to so many
beautiful areas to paint.
The paintings on this site represent just a few of the paintings that I have painted over the last few
years. I paint in what I would describe as a conservative impressionist. I have found this style of
Impressionism to be a style that I am continually being inspired, challenged and excited by.
I paint out of doors (Plein Air), as much as the weather allows. Those periods where I cannot be in
nature, and instead am relegated to my studio, I like to use some of the smaller plein air studies,
along with photos taken during my outdoors sessions to paint larger pieces.
I hope that you enjoy the samples presented on my website, and check back periodically for new

Art without life?
I hope that you can find as much life in these
paintings as I felt when I painted them
