I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
The American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) included an article in their Winter 2017 publication on me as a new signature member. Big thanks to ASMA for sharing this spotlight on my work. I hope you enjoy reading the article.
The Balclutha is a three-masted, steel-hulled, square-rigged ship built in 1886 to carry a variety of cargo all over the world. It is now part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

My mother-in-law, Shirley Morris, passed away and the family had a Celebration of Life service last Saturday. To honor the amazing person she was, I painted her portrait. The painting was displayed at the book sign-in table and after the service, I went to my father-in-law's home and hung the painting across from her favorite chair.

TheMahoney Vineyardsin Napa California used my 8 x 10 oil painting titledPetaluma Sheepfor two of their wines. The Carneros Ranch 2014 Chardonnay and the 2013 Pinot Noir both have this image on their wine labels. I visited with the owner, Francis Mahoney recently enjoying a beautiful Napa day. It’s always an honor to have one of my paintings be chosen for a wine label.
