"My paintings are intended to evoke the hand-painted, timeworn walls of a grand old Parisian mansion. Each piece resembles an aged decorative fresco panel adorned with birds and flowers, vines and leaves in a modern Chinoiserie style. I live with my family on Bainbridge Island in a historic 110-year-old house built of Bainbridge beach rock. Its history and dark Craftsman style have influenced my love of layered narrative paintings filled with pattern, worn colorful surfaces, and the love of generations past."
