I grew up in a magical world of wonder, playing outside, climbing apple trees, happily exploring, discovering, and day dreaming (and doing my chores, of course!). At about six I asked my Mom if she could teach me how to garden and she let me tend a big patch of zinnias and four o'clocks from seeds to bloom! I still garden and love being outside, I collect objects that end up in my paintings, a piece of fruit, a teapot, a plate or bowl. I have sketchbooks full of flowers, leaves, bugs and butterflies, birds, vases and vistas, sunsets, cloud formations, these all fuel my paintings and bring joy everyday. My work depicts the familiar with an enhanced realism built with colors, dots, and texture. MY MUSES & INFLUENCES the magic of my childhood-blue and white dinnerware Matisse, Bonnard, Mary Fedden my flower and veg garden my home the countryside my dogs Pu, Chamois, Tully, and Lulu.
I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. My work is collected and commissioned worldwide. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Oregon State University.

Acryla-Miser Palette - I lay out my palette once every few weeks or so. This palette enables me to keep a nice blob of acrylic hydrated and usable for about 1 week. I usually use the paint up by then, and switch everything out. Clean well when changing out the colors.
