Salt Lake City, Utah

Lives in
Burbank, CA

Works in
Los Angeles, CA

figurative, abstract, photography, landscape, pop, mixed-media


I don’t try to define my art for anyone else, but rather let the audience decide for themselves what they see and how it makes them feel. As I go through the creative process I believe the art becomes what it wants to be, and I am merely the instrument through which it is created. I paint both abstract and figurative works and love the exuberance of bright colors against a dark backdrop.

I am a self-taught artist and while I think all education is wonderful, I think EVERYONE should paint (or do some kind of art) whether they have been formally taught or not.

I have been very fortunate to have my work shown at various galleries, cafes, salons and shops in the Los Angeles area. I have also had several pieces rented and sold as set decorating on Film and Television productions.

My family and friends are my muses; everything about living a life filled with their influence inspires my creativity.

Love Art, Live to Create
