Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have long enjoyed the beauty, tranquility, and lush environment this area affords. As an avid hiker and camper, I find the mountains and ocean beaches to be some of my favorite places. Having recently lived in the beautiful Skagit Valley of NW Washington and now residing in the lovely Willamette Valley of Corvallis, OR, I also enjoy the rural farms and fields of life in the valley - these vast open spaces and patterned landscapes often permeate my paintings. Wherever I am, I find beauty and joy in my surroundings and in my life, which directly affects my subject matter, color choices and my ongoing approach to…

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have long enjoyed the beauty, tranquility, and lush environment this area affords. As an avid hiker and camper, I find the mountains and ocean beaches to be some of my favorite places. Having recently lived in the beautiful Skagit Valley of NW Washington and now residing in the lovely Willamette Valley of Corvallis, OR, I also enjoy the rural farms and fields of life in the valley - these vast open spaces and patterned landscapes often permeate my paintings.

My journey as an artist has come full circle, and I am grateful to be at this point in my artistic travels. During my childhood, I enjoyed drawing, and excelled at realisticrepresentations of animals using colored pencils. I occasionally dabbled with watercolor and acrylics, but enjoyed the detail of colored pencils the most. My love of animals took me to college, where I had planned to study biology. Along the way, however, my love of art was re-kindled, and I found myself pursuing fine art in painting. I graduated in 1992 with a BFA from the University of Washington and later received a teacher’s certificate in 1995. However, other than the occasional commission,I followed job opportunities in business and Technology and eventually ended up in Information Technology, managing information systems and then consulting. I had temporarily left the world of art. Now, I’m back! And I love every minute of it.

Today I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by a loving family (husband and two children), who support me in my artistic efforts and being a full time artist. I am enjoying painting every day, and interacting with the artist community – I’m a member of the Arts Center of Corvallis, OR, the Allied Arts of Whatcom County, and the Skagit Art Association, as well as being involved with several on-line artist communities.

My painting is truly an expression of the person I am today. I hope you enjoy my work, and knowing the path which brought it to you.
