Bio Information    

  I have been drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. It is my love and reverence for the natural world that takes me outdoors to study and to paint. While I have spent many years as a teacher, this past decade has brought me more time to focus on my own drawing and painting.

I love to paint. I love to play with the unspoken elements of the visual experience. Looking, seeing, exploring; in essence have a visual call and response, a sensing affair, with surroundings. Using the language of art to express a certain perceived order and harmony, relationships, connections. There is the outer dance of color shapes and the inner call for presence that gives rise to each mark, each color-shape on the canvas.
