I grew up in a creative family in California and France. I paint impressions of landscapes in Napa Valley, France and Mexico. My love of animals shows in my dog portraits of my pet dachshunds. My current series “In the Mist” consists of still lifes, portraits, animals and landscapes emerging from colorful, abstract backgrounds. I have won numerous awards in local exhibitions and my work can be viewed at the Art Association Napa Valley gallery at 1307 1st Street in downtown Napa.
