Painting Around the World

My two loves are art and travel.

Modernism Week - Palm Springs

Feb 2018

I was inspired by all the mid-century architecture, furnishings and colors and after returning home, I channeled the experiences into my Pool Series paintings.

Monet's Gardens

May 2016

My dream came true in May 2016 when I joined "My Art Trip" in Paris and Giverny, France. Ever since I saw my first Monet exhibit in SDMA, I dreamed of visiting his gardens. I loved plein-air painting in the early mornings and evenings to the sounds of the frogs in the pond and birds in the trees.

Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic

July 2015

I was selected as one of six COAL artists to travel to our sister city, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, to represent Carlsbad, CA. Five of my paintings were shown in the exhibit. The mayor presented us with gifts at the reception at the Municipal Gallery at the Hot Spring Colonnade.
