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 painter Mark Kang-O’Higgins. I graduated in June 2019 and joined Gage’s Flack Core Drawing Atelier for one year, led by master draftsman Geoff Flack.

Artist Statement

I work in the realist and Impressionist traditions of Western representational art, although I agree with David Hockney that all art is abstract.  My work is a response to the beautiful and curious things I see – a way of loving the world. My hope is that my paintings have a presence and share with the viewer some of the pleasure of paint.
