Thanks for viewing my watercolors.  I am an Orinda resident by way of Walnut Creek, San Francisco and New York.  Watercolor has become my medium of choice and I thoroughly enjoy the challenges and results of the medium.  While my ‘Plein Air’ work had been mostly landscapes, recently I have discovered youth sports as a subject matter to paint.  Youth sports are a part of my family life and I hope that you will relate to these new images.

The most up to date galleries of my fine art is my FaceBook Artist page, please give it a like!

When not painting my environs, I am an architectural illustrator / conceptual designer working with clients on projects worldwide.  My images have been published in several books and numerous publications including Architectural Digest, Landscape Architecture, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle & Examiner, Orion Magazine, Imobilier and Unique Homes.

I am a member of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators, The New York Society of Renderers and the Society of Architectural Illustrators.  Recently served five years serving on the Design Review Commission for the city of Walnut Creek and on the Steering Committee for the Walnut Creek General Plan update 2025.

BA, in Art with a minor in Architecture from Roger Williams College in Bristol, RI.  Additional class work done at the Rhode Island School of Design, the Boston Architectural Center and the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

I gladly accept commissions for your favorite landscapes, house portraits and youth sports scenes.
