I began painting when I was 11 years old. I paint the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the faces of people I find there. Recently I began exploring flowers.

I have always felt energy emanating from river and mountain landscapes. The geology and the animals who dwell in rural settings give off a wonderful vibe that I feed off of.
Everything and everyone have a story to tell. I love capturing an interesting image of an inanimate object and letting viewers come up with their own ideas about it.
I have been experimenting with cold wax and oil. There are some stories that can only be told through layers of movement.
