The challenge, when painting outdoors, is to capture the rapidly changing light. I know I must cover the panel quickly and accurately so I don't focus on details or exact shapes but on the masses. Fired up with adrenaline, it is a mental and physical workout to paint knowing that the light will change in a flash. I paint with a limited palette of a warm and cool of each of the three primary colors, plus titanium white.
I grew up in the Pasadena area of California and attended UCLA. After graduating with a BA in graphic design, I worked in the creative department for graphic design and advertising firms in Los Angeles. For the past 19 years I have lived in Seattle with my family.
