California Landscapes - Abstract Expressionism

About Me


I was born and raised in the most beautiful, sophisticated and diverse city in California - San Francisco. I feel fortunate to have been a part of all the changes San Francisco has seen and how it has influenced me as a person and a painter.


I graduated from San Francisco's Academy of Art University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Commercial Illustration.

Philosophy on life

* Keep your life simple and your mind complex. In other words, read, look, listen, absorb, and most importantly, express!

*If you're going to do something, do it well. Strive, and give it your best. Otherwise, what's the point?

*Set aside time to reflect and dream.

*Your head and heart go hand-in-hand. When it comes to finances, follow your head. When it comes to people, follow your heart.
