I love the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest and enjoy taking what strikes me from a view and trying to express it on paper. I also like looking close in, seeing the structure and details that we usually miss till we really look.

I paint in soft pastels and watercolor. For pastel paintings I plan the composition with a quick thumbnail sketch, then begin on sanded paper with an underpainting or with hard pastels as a base layer and softer pastels for additional layers

I've completed workshops with a number of artists including Judith Cunningham, Susan Ogilvie, Richard McKinley, William Park, Tony Allain, Carol Riley and Judy Morris.
