Having grown up in Wyoming, I was influenced by the wide open vistas of land on the high plains and the Rocky Mountains. I was a potter/ceramic artist for nearly a quarter of a century, and showed in many galleries across the U.S., including the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery.  Now as a painter, I'm excited by the power of color and bold strokes, something that was not available to me when I worked in clay. I start painting every morning before doing just about anything else, often in my pj's. Before moving to my current home in Ashland, Oregon I spent 25 years living in the San Francisco Bay Area, and before that, Billings, MT.

My paintings are contemporary, impressionistic, acrylic on canvas and paper, using mark-making and texture with bold, rich pigment for people who love being surrounded by color. Since January 2019 I have made a painting a day.

I love that, along with larger more costly paintings,  I can also sell small, unframed paintings at affordable prices. This makes them perfect for gifts, and also gives you the opportunity to create your own private collection! Thank you for taking a look at my gallery!

Please note that each computer monitor is calibrated differently, so the colors in the original painting might differ slightly from what you see on your computer screen.
