Ocean waves and beaches are my subjects. The energy of surf on a beach, the sand, smell of salt, the light on the water, all attract me on a deep level. I've been pulled to this ever since I began walking along beaches and watching the surf as a little kid. Having grown up on the California coast, I return to the beaches there and in Oregon again and again to get new ideas. Lately I've been working on a series of paintings and drawings I call "elemental surf". I feel that my most recent drawings, my entry this year, are my strongest work yet. I have enjoyed drawing and painting since childhood, and have been a full-time artist since 1990.
