CLOSE UP AND FAR AWAY

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.

LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? let my VISION ENRICH YOUR LIFE.

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 encaustic. There are some stories that can only be told through layers of movement.
