The intersection of memory, places and time...  


My long-held passion for painting led me to the University of California at Santa Barbara where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Art Studio with an emphasis in Painting. 

Our landscape is an ever changing one. I attempt to capture what still exists today. All of these places are relevant parts of the environment we inhabit in our daily lives and are the settings for the memories we make.
