Time to enter the "Bliss Zone." Getting out for a hike leads to a healthy mind, body and soul. It's easy to discover the beauty and benefits of hiking the diverse and wild, California landscape, the instant you set foot on the trail. The great outdoors is my happy place and the constant inspiration behind my paintings. I feel a sense of wonder when I'm hiking a trail filled with wildflowers or discovering a new adventure on my travels. All my senses come alive and I am transported into a painting.
