"Whatever the subject matter of my painting—from architecture to water—my work is always about light and mood. The water I paint is in swimming pools, from the solitude of motels to the darker mood of garden pools in shadow. I move from painting to painting always looking for the less that is more."
“My study of art began at Santa Rosa Junior College. I started with a class in life drawing, then moved on to painting. When I returned to San Francisco, I found a workspace and began painting images of bare walls and floors suffused in light and shadow. In 1982 I moved to New York and earned a living designing luxury textiles for home furnishings. I learned much about color from those years in the industry. In 1998 I returned to San Francisco and painting. Since 2003 I have been painting the blue waters of swimming pools—from the geometric solitude of motels to the darker mood of garden pools in shadow.”
