Certificate of Graduation, Kang-O-Higgins Atelier, Gage Academy of Art, Seattle, WA, June 2019

Artist Bio

I began painting in high school and continued, on and off, through early adulthood, when I changed direction and for twenty years made quilts in the Amish tradition.  In 2003 I returned to fine art and, while working full-time in another field, began studying  at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle.  In 2015 I entered one of Gage’s full-time atelier programs, the Kang-O’Higgins atelier, led by artist Mark Kang-O’Higgins. I graduated in June 2019.

Artist Statement

I work in the realist and Impressionist traditions of Western representational art, although I believe, with David Hockney, that all art is abstract.  My work is a response to visual experience – light crossing space, a human face or gesture. My hope is that my paintings have a presence and share with the viewer some of the pleasure of paint.
