About

Bio I was born in and lived in Southern California until 1985, when my husband and I moved to the Great Northwest of Washington State. We are located just across the Strait from Victoria, B.C. and at the base of the glacier covered, Olympic Mountains, in Port Angeles. We live in a rural area called Four Seasons Ranch, in the Morse Creek Valley. The Morse Creek (actually a river) runs down from the Mountains, through our valley, and out to the beach, of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, carrying, tumbling, and smoothing stones all the way. It was here that I began my artistic pursuits, by painting on the river/beach stones that I find near my home. Surrounded by mountains, forests, lakes, and rivers, as well as the beautiful, blue waters of the Strait, this spectacular, natural scenery attracts artists of all pursuits.

Art is one of my passions, and I have developed an expression of painting on stones…

Art is one of my passions, and I have developed an expression of painting on stones that is unique. I represent my art as "Ishi" (which translates rock or stone, in Japanese). I began to photograph my "Ishi Stones", in complimentary compositions. I call these "Ishi Photographs", which are produced in signed, numbered, Limited Editions. Along with the Stones, I started to paint my designs on wooden boxes and gourds . Soon, I started applying my designs to hand painted note cards. I have added printed note cards, mouse pads, ceramic mugs, and T-shirts, with calenders to come.
