I have been painting for many years. While living in Colorado and New Mexico in the early 1970’s I began studying drawing and painting. The subtle colors and light in New Mexico coaxed me into exploring the watercolor medium. Later I began to expand into oil painting. By now I have also enjoyed success with gouache and a variety of acrylic paints.

I find inspiration in a variety of subjects in my home state of Colorado. I love painting in the West, which from a very young age made strong visual impressions on me. More recently I have created numerous lively and colorful abstract works, using acrylic and collage materials on paper and canvas. My husband and I often spend time at our family cabin near Gunnison, Co. I often paint in that area when we explore the mountains. In addition to many awards in juried art shows, my work has been chosen for a number of outstanding exhibitions, such as Aquarius National Watermedia (Pueblo, Co.); International Watermedia XVII and XVIII in Colorado Springs; “Own Your Own Art” Show (Pueblo, Co.); CWS “Splash” Show (Gunnison, Co.); BAA-Chautauqua Juried Art Show, (Boulder, Co.); “Artists of the West” Show, Pioneer’s Museum in Colorado Springs; Denver Symphony Guild’s Designer Show Home at Phipps Mansion in Denver; and Colorado State Fair Fine Arts Exhibit in Pueblo, Co. I am a Signature Member of Pikes Peak Watercolor Society.

I paint in oil, watercolor, gouache and acrylic. I enjoy painting a variety of subjects including colorful impressions of the West, subjects inspired by my travels, and flowers. My work has been exhibited and won awards in many outstanding juried art shows. My sensitive watercolors reflect my lifelong interest in the diversity of cultures. I am a native Kansas and my travels and studies in Africa and Europe bring much to my work. I love to paint "nooks and crannies", western landscapes and vignettes of everyday life.
