More Info


So very nice to have you here.

My website is about my life as an artist, art instructor, wife and mom living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

In my art journey, I try to be open to the creative process – to express both the beauty that I see around me as well as the energy within.



My favorite part of being an artist is having the opportunity to explore new ideas and new methods of expression. I see each new work as a journey of discovery.

Although I’m best known for my work in watercolor, I also use oil and acrylic paints, encaustic, collage and mixed media.

Currently, I have an encaustic exhibit on currently on display at Seven Feathers Casino Resort.  And I have artwork available for purchase online.


I’m honored and humbled to be an art instructor.  There is nothing quite like the feeling of helping someone express their own creativity.

I teach exactly how I would want to be taught – in a way that encourages folks to create with more freedom, boldness and simplicity.

I’m available for both online classes and ‘real-life’ workshops.  The internet allows me to reach people far and wide while the camaraderie experienced in a live workshop is a special treat.  In both settings, I strive to provide quality instruction in an relaxed, friendly atmosphere.


Bringing my ‘art life’ full circle, I also am the gallery manager of Gallery 7, an art display space within Seven Feathers Casino Resort.  The gallery features artwork from artists in the Pacific Northwest.

I’m entering my fourth year at Gallery 7 and with each exhibit the excitement and enthusiasm grows. It’s rewarding to be promoting the artwork of regional artists as well as providing a visual treat to the clientele of Seven Feathers.

Working as a gallery manager has benefited and complemented my work as an artist and I’m thankful for the experience.
