I live in a small northern California coastal town, transplanted from New York many years ago. I teach violin and perform in local symphony orchestras, and have had a long time meditation practice which, along with the rural experience, have informed my painting.

Recently I have been depicting time; seasons, sections of day, and the days of the week, which connote particular color. I have always loved the ephemeral as opposed to the solid: essence, mystery, expansion and spatial ambiguity.
