Plein air painting in New Bagan, Myanmar.

Welcome to my blog.

I was born in Los Angeles in 1972. From the age of 6 to 10 I lived in the Fiji Islands where my father was a regional director of the Peace Corps. The beauty of Fiji and my native California instilled in me a love of the natural world.

For 20 years I lived in Florence, Italy, though would I spend a few months every year painting in the US. At present I live in Zagreb, Croatia.

Every winter I travel with a group of like-minded plein air painters to warmer climates to keep working outside. Past destinations have included Kenya, India, Greece and Albania, the Caribbean, Morocco, and this year, Myanmar.

I created this blog to share information about techniques and materials as well as to keep people updated on my paintings and exhibitions. Your comments are appreciated.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Your work is a wonderful culmination of concepts from past masters that w most likely both share. I was a student of RH Ives Gammell back in the 70′s… plus a handful of other master painters, including the colorist Henry Hensche. My wife and I travel some and paint together… I enjoyed viewing your paintings, especially like the minimalist quality of suggestion….
    ciao, ernest
