Artist Statement

I paint in both watercolor and/or pastel to capture the fascinating patterns of light and shadow on a person or an object. I paint to revel in color and texture, for the satisfaction of solving a complex problem, and for the joy of creating an original work of art.

Here on the North Olympic Peninsula of Washington state, we are spoiled for choice with spectacular vistas of mountains, water, forests, fields, gardens, and wildlife
