Born and raised in Portland Oregon, I took my first painting class at the age of 12 with my grandfather. He was a talented watercolorist, and we had such fun. This was the beginning of my love of paint and brushes. After a career in commercial design and photography, I’m happy to be back to my beginnings, enjoying the freedom to express through paint.
