I’m a newcomer to the Sierra Foothills. Before my arrival  here, most of my work was created with a brush.

When you visit my art web site or my studio, you’ll find quiet and controlled brush paintings as well asMaria1


some wild palette knife work…




Ever since I moved up here, I’ve been greatly influenced by our magnificent rock formations. Now
I’m mostly creating highly sculptural palette-knife pieces, unified by layers of vibrant color.

Both types of paintings are created with
numerous layers of vibrant color…. kind of like baklava!

The unifying factor in both
techniques is my layering of vivid color.
I feel that my paintings have a life of their own.  If you encounter my work and are moved in some way, then I know I have created a successful painting!
