Witnessing the dramatic interplay of light, the changing colors of the seasons, or the complex beauty of a garden provides me with a constant source of inspiration for my pastel paintings. I strive to capture some of the emotion I feel as I gaze upon a serene landscape or observe the intricate detail of a single blossom. Trips to Europe and across the United States have provided many images for my pastels; I also enjoy painting the rolling hills and bountiful farmland of Pennsylvania, or the beautiful lake regions of Minnesota - the two areas I call home. I have been pleased to have my work included in national and international juried exhibitions and have received many awards. I hold membership in a number of pastel organizations and have been elected to signature status in the Pastel Society of America. Recently, I have also learned that I have achieved the designation of "Master Pastelist" in the International Association of Pastel Societies. I continue to study and take annual workshops with master pastel artists as I look forward to being a lifelong student of pastel, my chosen medium.
