I am a mixed media artist living and working in the Bay Area, California. I work primarily with acrylic paints and collage papers.I am fascinated by and especially drawn to abstract and figurative art and urban structures and skylines. My goal is to capture the essence of a city or figure and convey a feeling about my subject with minimalism and abstraction using textures and color.
My work can be viewed in exhibits and at my studio at The Alameda Artworks, San Jose.
My paintings have won numerous awards and have been accepted into National and Statewide shows including The Triton Museum of Art, The New Museum of Los Gatos, The California Watercolor Association and The International Society of Acrylic Painters where I received signature membership.
In 2021 I was awarded Best of Show at the UArt Open juried exhibit by George Rivera. for my painting “New Construction”. My painting “Sheltered Within” was one of 50 artworks accepted into the Left Coast Annual Exhibit, 2022 at Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica out of 1200 entries. For 2 consecutive years I have had paintings accepted into the Triton Statewide 2D exhibit , “Salon at the Triton” 2021 and 2022.
