I love to paint and explore new ideas and methods of expression. I am the happiest during the process of creating art.
Although I’m best known for my paintings in watercolor, I also work in gouache, acrylic, and mixed media. I like texture, lines, and subtle colors.
I live on the Oregon coast with my husband and yellow lab Ellie. The beauty of the forest and the ebb and flow of coastal waters inspire my art.
