Every experience informs creative work and I've never been more inspired than I am right now. Not having been bored a day in my life, that is saying something special. I'd been coming up to Channel Islands Harbor and Ventura Harbor for a couple of years and really enjoying painting the ships going in and out of the channel. I'd daydreamed about living here full-time, just because I was always struck by the endless inspiration I felt every time I was here, but I was truly surprised when we ended up living here full time so soon after we discovered this gem of a place. Thank you to our dear friends the Zeiles for that! As a resident now, I can't seem to capture the images I see daily fast enough. I am constantly awed by the light at the coast and by the shapes and colors of everything surrounding me. I hope you'll join me on this journey as I continue to paint the stories that strike me as worthy of being told. I'll be adding new pieces to this collection frequently and I am currently working on five much larger pieces this month.
Stay tuned for information on a solo show with these pieces and many more in 2018 or 2019 if you're interested in seeing them in person. Thank you for joining me as I explore!
