Sacramento River Drama

My work expresses the beauty of a lush & diverse California landscape, mainly scenes from around my beloved home town, Sacramento. As an Expressionist painter, I love to leave the brushstroke visible & to capture the feeling of the places I paint.


I currently offer In-Person Private Art Lessons to Individuals & Small Groups in my studio, teaching a variety of medium, & offering a wealth of fine art technique fundamentals for interested artists of all ages & skill levels.
See the Art Class tab on this site and email me at to schedule your art lessons today!
My primary goal in teaching art is to break down 2-D fine art technique (sketching, painting, color theory) for my students. After my classes, my students feel confident in their fine art skills & are ready to make original artwork on their own.
