I grew up in the Pacific Northwest but have lived in many other places. I spent almost 5 years cruising on a sailboat in the Caribbean traveling from South America and on up to countries in Central America. Later I spent 6 months living in Mexico. When I returned to the Pacific Northwest I started a series of paintings of scenes around Puget Sound. My originals have been displayed in the Washington State Capitol Building and in galleries and shows around Puget Sound.
In previous years I painted mostly bright whimsical paintings mixed with pen and ink. I had commissions from the Marriott Company and resorts in the Anacortes and San Juan Islands area. I did a card line, t-shirts, posters and prints. In the past 4 years I've focused mainly on photo-realistic paintings of my favorite scenes which range from mountains and water, boats and people to farmers markets and farm animals.
