Biography


Always having an interest in the arts, I began my personal journey as a young adult taking watercolor classes and honing my skills.  After several years of creating, selling, and then teaching in watercolors, I explored the medium of pastels and was instantly drawn to their lushness and sensuous tactile quality.
Today, working mostly in pastel, I am inspired by the beauty in the ordinary, moments in time, objects, people, and the scenery around me, I strive to capture the spark, that bright spot of color, shadow, or composition that best conveys the excitement and spirit that initially caught my attention.  For me, pastels are the perfect medium to speak my artist’s voice and convey a visual story.
 
My hope is that through my art, the viewer will see with new eyes and a new appreciation of the world around them. 
In 2021, I became a partner at the Graton Gallery in Graton California where my paintings are permanently on display.
I'm also showing at “Corrick’s” gallery in downtown Santa Rosa.
 
Each fall, for two weekends, I participate in Sonoma County’s “Art Trails”, a juried open studios tour, demonstrating and selling my art out of my studio.  
 
Over the years I have been juried into a multitude of local galleries and shows, winning a range of awards.  I was a partner at “Local Color Gallery” in Bodega Bay, Ca. displaying my art and co-managing the gallery for 10 years until its closure. 
 
I am a member of The Pastel Society of America and the International Association of Pastel Societies, The Pastel Society of the West Coast, Pastel Society of Oregon, Pastel Society of North Carolina, Northwest Pastel Society, and The Pastel Society of Southern California
