I'm a painter based in San Francisco and I often travel to paint commissions and teach painting workshops. I paint the moments that cause me to look up, slow down, and to remind myself how a place felt. I hope the viewer is left with some of of the magic I felt while painting it.

A few months ago, I posted on Nextdoor, asking neighbors to send me uncommon views of San Francisco — their favorite slices of the city from their sister’s roof, their doc’s office, dance studio etc. and I got the most incredible photos!

I painted a few of them for Open Studios this year - Neighborhood collaboration! I’m giving prints to the people who sent me views I painted. And I plan to keep this project going. It's been so fun. I'll also have lots of 8.5x11" and 11x17" prints available too. Please stop by to say hello!
