  CC: Tell us about your background and how you got your start as an artist.

JM: I have loved creating art for as long as I can remember. Growing up I loved to draw and started painting more seriously in college at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with a B.A. in Fine Art. Shortly after I moved to San Diego, where I currently reside and continue to find constant inspiration by the coast.

 CC: In what style do you paint/how would you describe your style?  

JM: I would describe my style as casual, modern coastal. I like to experiment with positive and negative space in my pieces using beach figures and patterns that pop out with unique color combinations. My work often features clean lines and bright, happy colors that pair perfectly with a seaside aesthetic.


CC: What type of paper do you use for prints?

JM: All paper prints are printed on 140 lb textured bright white cold press watercolor paper. Resistant to water and acid free, this textured matte paper delivers great print quality and vibrant colors. Originals are painted with latex paint on a medium weight cotton gallery canvas with a 1-1/2" profile.

  CC: What inspires your work?  

JM: Definitely coastal style, design, and beach fashion. I’m always drawn to ocean blues and bright corals.

CC: How do you recommend people style your art?  Do you like a larger statement piece, a small piece on a shelf or a collage?

JM: I think all of those options are great. Art is so personal and part of the fun is putting it in your own space to make it feel uniquely yours. One of my favorite ways to style art is on shelves because it isn’t as permanent as a fixed piece, and you can continue to mix and match and be creative with your space.

CC: When you’re not painting, what can we find you doing?

JM: Spending time at the beach with my three kids and exploring San Diego.
