            I have lived in the Northwest all my life. I reside in West Linn with my husband and two daughters. I love the beauty of the Northwest which gives me so much inspiration for my paintings. I began studying oil painting in 1983 with Millie Van Sickle. I had been working in oils for approximately 10 years when I began studying water colors with Bill Woltjes. I have been working in water media since 1993. I attend as many workshops with different artists as possible to broaden my skills and techniques in water media. I find painting and creating beauty very rewarding. To be able to put feeling and emotion into a painting and creating something others enjoy is very gratifying.
