The beautiful hillsides of Marin County, California, provided the initial inspiration for my first paintings. While I am now branching out and exploring other kinds of imagery, the Marin hills remain one of my favorite subjects.
Trees are another favorite. They provide an environment in which many creatures, including people, can enjoy a living shelter and a sense of safety. When I paint trees, I try to represent that environment - that place where we remember our simple, yet deep feelings that connect us to the beauty and mystery that is right next to us.
