I am a native of Colorado and grew up in Denver. I credit my grandmother for developing my love of the arts.  She would allow me to collect discarded paper and art supplies from the schools where she was the custodian.  She encouraged me to use whatever I wanted. I visited the tiny room where she worked and would delight in creating, drawing, imagining to my heart's content.  

My parents' love for artwork and its creation fostered my passion for drawing, painting, and creating collages with various interesting mediums. Like all school children I had art classes throughout my public-school years.  However, passion for art has always been a major part of my life either as an objective observer of other artists or as a dabbler during my free-time alone with my art supplies.

 

I have worked and pursued my creative talents in Western Washington since 1983 and live in Kitsap County. As a self-taught painter, I have been a keen student of the galleries and artists the Northwest has to offer. I have worked and pursued my creative talents in Western Washington since 1983. I currently reside in Poulsbo. 

 

As a self-taught painter, I have been a keen student of the galleries and artists the Northwest has to offer.  While working in a career in public education, my creative outlet focused on local community theatre. I have had various roles in different theatre companies, which encompassed acting, directing, costuming, and set design. This background indirectly helped pave the way to putting brush to canvas and creating the artwork you see today.

 

After retiring from education, I realized the inner need to create on canvas and have had the time to truly

devote and develop my craft.  An artist "Just Is." This inner momentum to produce takes hold at

various times in each of our lives. The artwork you see today is the result of my artistic journey and for your enjoyment.
