Nature's beauty inspires me to capture images constantly so that I may someday paint them to express myself.

Presentation & Biography

“I have always considered myself a ‘fine artist’ first, even after over 33 years working in the graphic arts industry.  As a teenager I was able to take oil painting classes and by high school I was stretching large canvases to paint on with the help of my carpenter father.

Each time I paint I feel something special draws me to a scene, the light and shadows excite me and color adds another dimension as the art evolves. I love capturing beautiful, dynamic images with my camera or I-phone today to use as references.

I am primarily a landscape artist who finds herself gravitating to ‘waterscapes’ much of the time. My paintings are realistic and today I use oils primarily but over the past number of years I had developed a love for pastels due to the graphic quality of them and my love for drawing. With oils I prefer working on smooth surfaces including linen and aluminum which are as smooth as glass and force me to approach my paintings in a different way.

As an artist, I always hope that others will share in the beauty I have found as each painting includes a piece of me and my life's adventures.”
