When sunlight catches an ordinary object just so, or when a special color resonates with my soul -- that's what inspires me. Those unexpected moments that reach out and grab your attention and that demand to be painted!
I also enjoy painting pet portraits that attempt to capture each pet's unique personality. I am a (mostly) retired veterinarian and never tire of being around our animal buddies.
My husband and I live in beautiful Olalla, Washington, with our dog, Charley. In addition to painting, I love to spend time hiking, kayaking and gardening in our glorious Pacific Northwest (and sometimes playing the ukelele or the banjo!)
I paint on Arches 140 pound Cold Press watercolor paper and use a variety of professional grade transparent watercolors to achieve rich, vibrant watercolor paintings that glow with color and light.
I am a member of the Northwest Watercolor Society, American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society, Peninsula Art League and National Association of Independent Artists.
