Artist Statement

Nature dominates my work and reflects my love of the outdoors.  The beauty of the Northwest provides a wealth of challenging themes to investigate.  My personal style evolves through discovery and experimentation.

 I use my art journals to generate ideas and study techniques.  I often begin a project with a drawing or background design and continue with layers of paint and mixed media.  Each layer adds depth and spirit to my original idea.

Currently, I am exploring color and honing my painting skills.  I am looking for a fresh, bold, new approach to my artwork.
