Living in San Diego, one typically thinks of sunny days most days. While that is typically the case, we have had an unusual number of rainy days during this past month of May. One night I was driving home from our local supermarket, and there was this amazing sunset in our neighborhood. The neighborhood I live in is Tierrasanta. I'm fortunate that my neighborhood has a lot of pine trees and eucalyptus trees. The sky was clearing up after a recent rain shower. The colorful sunset sky set a nice backdrop for the trees in my area.
What is fun about painting is that it allows me to capture a memory via color and brushstroke. Enjoy!

Most of us are captivated by beautiful imagery in our daily life: a vibrant sunset, a beautiful piece of architecture, a garden. And yet, with our busy lives, we don’t always have time to enjoy what we already have in our surroundings. I am an artist living in San Diego, painting for over 20 years. My daytime profession is in healthcare, but my artful spirit calls me to create on a regular basis. I began experimenting with oil paints as a young teen. In college I continued my endeavors with various media, and accomplished the equivalent of a Minor of Art in college. After college I pursued a graduate degree in psychology, yet still I continued painting. I have apprenticed under Tetrachromat Artist Concetta Antico in San Diego. Through her instruction, I became the oil painter and artist I am today. In spite of my day job in healthcare, I am regularly compelled to paint and share meaningful images with others in my own colorful and playful style.
