I've been an artist and teacher throughout my adult life with a passion for art since childhood. I paint in pastel and oil primarily but enjoy venturing into other mediums for exploration and to study technique and effects.
I've been fortunate to have been selected by Southwest Art magazine to be featured in the October, 2015 published section titled "Women in Art" as well as in the September, 2014 and 2015 issues under Preview Show pages. My painting "Trading Post" was awarded "Best Oil" at the Western Spirit Show in Cheyenne. Clive Tyler awarded my body of work Second Place at the 2017 PSC Signature show. Awarded the Terry Ludwig award at the 2018 Small Works Show in Boulder at Mary Williams Fine Arts, juror and judge: Dave Santillanes. Also awarded 2nd Place at the 2019 Small Works Show at Mary Williams in Boulder by Juror/judge Jeanne Rosier Smith.
I choose to paint the landscape with its variety of textures, light, color and movement, for the challenge, to learn and grow as an artist. My works are bold, direct and emotional; I strive to capture the power and excitement that I experience while out in nature.
To borrow from a David Bowie interview on BBC... "The gray space between the creation and the audience is what it's all about."
