This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted March 2005, is from the artist who paints in the Pacific Northwest.

"I have been painting in the Northwest for many years, and enjoy painting the magical scenery and light that makes this such a beautiful area. Spring and summer months often find me painting outside in the plein air style, while the winter months bring mostly studio work. Painting, for me, is a continual growth process which usually involves creating several paintings a week. The majority of my work is in oils, but I also paint in acrylics from time to time.

My roots in painting are influenced by the Early California Plein-Air Impressionist style. Originally from Southern California, I attended art school at California State University Long Beach, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Art. Seeing many of the Early California Plein-Air paintings at various museums and galleries had a major influence on the development of my style.

Other painting influences include the tonalist style and the Hudson River School. I especially enjoy the work of George Inness, Franz Bischoff, William Wendt and Maurice Braun.

As my work evolves, I see my paintings becoming a hybrid of the tonalist, impressionist, and Hudson River School influences. My goal is to follow in the footsteps of the early masters, creating paintings that capture the qualities of light and color of the early impressionist movement.
