My interest is painting from life, looking out at the world and interpreting it. I do plein air landscapes and figures from life in the style of impressionistic realism. Most of my paintings are done in a short timeframe though I’ve started to paint some larger multi-session paintings. I’m using the W&N Artisan water mixable oil paints on RayMar canvas panels. I’ve also been playing around with some watercolor for shorter figure paintings.
I help organize a group of plein air painters, the San Diego Plein Air Painters Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/painter-86/). We go out on Saturday mornings all around San Diego and paint. I have a B.A. in illustration from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
