"I want to paint the way the bird sings", Claude Monet. This is a favorite quote that expresses the joy of painting and the spontaneity and creativity I seek to express in my art.


I feel very fortunate to live in Colorado with its beautiful scenery, and spectacular skies.  I paint in oil, pastel, and mixed media, enjoying the bright, vivid colors and textures these mediums provide. Working in different mediums helps to keep my art fresh and exciting. Over the years, my art is becoming increasingly abstract, striving not only to record, but, to express a sense of place, of fleeting moments in time. My abstracted landscapes, of places real or imagined, offer vivid colors that are applied intuitively and strive to be peaceful and uplifting.
