After traveling and living in other places, I decided to settle in the Pacific Northwest, having always loved and appreciated the outdoors. Today, I spend as much time as possible basking and reveling in its wonders. When I’m not painting, you can find me trail running, spending time with my family, or sharing my passion for art with others. Part of that passion has been captured in 24 years of teaching art.
When I share my visual translations with others, I absorb the sensational impact it has on them and treasure the poignant dialog that follows. It is the welcome exchange of thoughtful perspectives which feeds my unyielding determination to paint.
My acrylic mixed media canvas paintings present to the world my inner thoughts, emotions, memories, and experiences. I believe in taking risks with intense color, textual fibers, and reflective materials. Not knowing the outcome, I rely on a fertile faith, and listen for an inner voice to determine direction and finality.
