Having been a surfer almost all my life, there is nothing like the thrill of paddling out into the beauty and majesty of the ocean. I painted this painting to capture that feeling and to represent all of the amazing women surfers who are now coming into their own in what was once a male dominated sport.

I am often asked how I go about painting on metal. It always start the same way. I
purchase stainless steel panels from my local metal supply company, and then have the sheets cut down to my desired size. I then distress the metal by using a grinder and a sanding pad. Not only does that technique create a surface for the paint to stick onto, but also allows the light to play off the metal once the painting is complete.

Considering that the metal is as much an integral part of my paintings, as is the oil paint - I make sure to leave as much of the metal showing through as I can. When light strikes the metal it creates the illusion of a 3D effect. As the viewer moves around the art it appears as if the reflecting light is dancing across the painting.

I primarily paint in my studio which is located in the historical Gaslamp Quarter in Down Town San Diego. My paintings are mostly a collage of ideas and images that I bring together to form a work of art. I use a thick oil medium that allows my brush strokes and colors to weave together seamlessly - much like water. My images are like a snapshot of time and place. The combination of all these factors give my paintings a dreamlike quality.
