I have been painting for over twenty years off and on while my husband and I raised our family in beautiful Montana. I am delighted to be able to have the opportunity to paint full time now. I have always loved to create. It is something that is embedded in my soul and has driven me to explore my creativity in many ways through-out the years.
I am inspired by the beauty in this world we live in. I am always in awe of how mother nature’s palette is always in harmony. The contrast between the dark and lights in nature is especially interesting to me and as a result I usually paint with high contrasts and saturation in my paintings.
I enjoy using several mediums: oil, watercolor and pastel. Each of these mediums fulfills my love of painting in different ways. Watercolor is my first love, but now I am enjoying the layering of oils from lean to fat and the texture you can create with oils as well as the earthiness and strong strokes of color you can get with pastels.
I love my life as an Artist and my motto is to “Find Joy in the Journey”
Enjoy what I have to offer,
