I am inspired by the way light strikes a certain subject, a scene that tells a story or a brooding stormy sky.  The Pacific Northwest has always been my favorite painting inspiration with its misty coastal beaches, bright tulip fields of the Skagit Valley, majestic Mount Rainier, evergreen trees and oh, so much more!  I also enjoy painting still life and some striking scenes from our vacation destinations.


Oil is my favorite medium.  I also enjoy working in watercolor and collage from time to time.  My style is a blend of impressionism and realism.  My paintings reflect a moment in time where light, weather, atmosphere, form and color all converge to create mood.


I studied art at the University of Puget Sound and The University of Washington.  I have shown and sold my work at the Washington State Fair for the last 16 years.  I am also a member of Rainier League of Arts and Pacific Gallery Artists.  

Hope you enjoy viewing my art!
