About the artist

Art has always been a part of my life. I grew up surrounded by paintings my parents bought and became acquainted with works by famous artists from early childhood.

I received a BFA from the University of Washington. After many years of graphic design work, teaching art classes, and other art endeavors I returned to my fine art roots, concentrating on watercolor painting. Recent works have included cut paper collages made up of paintings which I "repurpose" into new images.

I am active in Cyber Art 509, an artist cooperative in the Tri-Cities area of Washington and a founding member of the Mid-Columbia Watercolor Society.
