Welcome to my Print On Demand website with Fine Art America. Originals of my work are available here also please visit my Facebook Page.
I was born near the shores of the Salish Sea, in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard. I grew up collecting beach glass and playing with Bullwhip kelp along the sandy stretch of Shilshole Bay. Currently I am living a little farther north in the charming waterfront town of Edmonds,Wa.
Does living in such a scenic part of the world inspire me as an artist? I have to answer yes, however I prefer not to limit myself to just marine and beach scenes. I paint what ever moves me. Whether it be an object lost or abandoned decades ago, or expressions of contemplation, undisturbed and hidden. I am inspired by color and light and attempt to capture the moment that is most often fleeting. As a result my paintings are of varied subjects mirroring my many moods and feelings.
I have worked with various mediums over the years finally settling into the wonderful world of Pastel, nothing compares to its brilliance in color or luxurious, velvet like texture. I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as I enjoy painting them.
