The beautiful, rural countryside of Winlock, Washington is the inspiration for most of my paintings. I do love to travel, though, and often do a series inspired by images captured on these trips. Since my husband and I have six dogs, they are also one of my favorite subjects. My watercolor dog portraits attempt to convey the personality and character traits of each breed.
I graduated from San Diego State and became a teacher after attending St. Martin's College to obtain my credential. I taught grades four on up through high school, where I spent years teaching art and drama. I got an MA in teaching in 2000 from Grand Canyon University. Most of my art training has been obtained through workshops and evening classes. I love learning and am always trying new techniques.
I am one of the founding members of the ARTrails of SWW organization which was founded in 2002. I belong to the NW Pastel Society and also am represented by the Rectangle Gallery in Centralia, WA.
Now that I have retired from teaching at public school I teach art workshops and extension classes at the local community college.
