Growing up in South Dakota, I was inspired as a child by the wildlife and beautiful landscape of the Black Hills. As an adult I lived for many years in coastal Northern California, enjoying the beauty of the ocean and redwoods. Now I enjoy exploring Washington state, my home for the past few years. The natural worls in these beautiful places inspire the mixed media paintings I create today.
I have painted for many years and I have also worked with oil, pastel, collage, ceramics and jewelry. I have marketed my work through galleries, art fairs, and retail and wholesale shows. I have a BA in fine art from The Evergreen State College in Olympia WA, studied painting, art history and printmaking at The Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Paros, Greece, and graphic design and ceramics at Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA.
