My vision of art is capturing intimate moments in nature and time.

Living in the city of Berkeley and the East Bay has given me a rich source of material. I create my watercolor paintings from my own photographs, sharing with others how I see and enjoy the beauty of color, design, shapes, textures, light and shadows.

I usually paint realistic flowers, succulents, plants and cozy landscapes. I also enjoy painting people, animals and houses..

As a former children's book and greeting card illustrator I can combine photo ideas to create new images.

In addition to watercolors I also work in acrylic paints on canvas.

Please contact me to discuss a piece from my gallery or a one-of-a-kind painting from one of your photos.
