I am inspired by the natural world, the man made world of cities, bridges, people, animals, plants but mostly lately it is the settings. I work in steps: sketch on location in ink, design my layout in ink or pencil, and then I’m ready to paint or to begin work on a print. I am a member of the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, the Print Arts NW group, and enter nationally recognized exhibits generally for transparent watercolor or watermedia. I also participate in juried events that document of our area: Willamette Falls Heritage, Estacada Arts Council. Every location has a story and I enjoy finding and making the area beautiful for the beholder.
