I paint portraits, landscapes, and anything else. I love to tell stories. I play traditional Irish music.

Life is like a long hike through mountains, deserts and valleys, meeting fellow travelers and hearing their tales, running from bears, hearing foxes bark clear and cold on the hillside.

I live in a house that’s almost like a treehouse (except we don’t have to climb a rope ladder). It’s the first house I’ve ever owned, and I’m filling it with art, music, love, and laughter.

It’s not perfect. It’s usually a mess, with projects spread all over every room. A flicker (a big brown woodpecker type bird) keeps trying to move into my attic. The deck needs refinishing.

But at night in the spring I can hear tree frogs singing like angels, and I can see the milky way. And the light of the Sierra Nevada lights my artwork and my mind.

  1. Your stuff is really gorgeous, and inspiring. I went back to drawing to become a better watercolorist. So I’ve challenged myself to make something every day this year. We’ll see how it turns out, but so far, so good. I will say that I’m looking forward to your updates because your work is beautiful and fresh and I don’t see a bum in the lot here. Thanks for sharing it.
