Dreaming of the seaside and of horses.
I grew up at Muir Beach just North of the Golden Gate and in the Napa Valley where impressions of Northern California and my continued passion for riding are the inspiration for my paintings.
I studied fine art at CCSF and graphic design at Platt College in San Francisco and became a furniture designer for a family furniture business.
My furniture designs have been featured on HGTV and Extreme Makeover and my showroom has been shopped by Sherwin Williams to determine current color forecasts.
Now a full time artist, My paintings have been purchased by HGTV Secrets of a Stylist’s show, the editors of Better Home and Gardens Magazine and are sold through Galleries, Designer Showrooms, Furniture Stores and The Atlanta and High Point Furniture Markets.
I’m the founder of COCA, the Coalition of California Artists, a group marketing to the home furnishings industry and 2013, 2014 president of the Petaluma Arts Association.
If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area I have a studio and private gallery in Petaluma open by appointment.
