As a teenager my passion was oil painting. After careers in commercial art, photography, and theatre, I am reliving that teenage passion. Inspiration begins when I am able to make and find meaning through a full engagement and integration with a new place. My art reflects my environment and its cultures, how I feel about the land I inhabit and the people I meet. Representational landscape is the type of artwork I am producing in oil and water media.
My paintings have been exhibited in this area at Three Rivers Artist Guild, Oregon City and Oregon Society of Artists, Portland.
