Iā€™m captivated by the magic in the mundane and am driven by a keen sense of observation and attention to atmosphere.

I work in oil and acrylic. My paintings emphasize pattern, light, reflection, and repetition. Kitsch, consumerism, euphemisms and voyeuristic separation are examined to suggest the inherent comedy, and absurdity, of daily life. I paint routine moments and objects to enhance the elusive beauty in everyday existence. 

I was born and raised in Encinitas, California. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. I currently live and work in Leucadia, California.
