My large-scale landscapes and figurative work use natural and man-made forms to anchor the viewer in the real world while encouraging contemplation of the metaphysical one. Starting with words or phrases collected from dreams, conversation, literature and even scientific journals, I work toward a visual translation that may take the form of elegy, commentary or imagined myth. 

After earning a degree in art history from Swarthmore College, I lived and worked on the East Coast for many years before transferring to the Bay Area. My studio in Anchor Bay is open year-round by appointment and for the annual Studio Discovery Tour in late summer.
