Welcome to my studio. I am in an exploratory mode and breaking with some watercolor traditions, painting vivid watercolors and mixed media using ultra violet resistant acrylic coatings to both enhance color and free artwork from the confines of matting and framing.
As a colorist employing all over bold color, it is the vibrancy of this method that intrigues me. I am also venturing into Acrylics, Mixed Media and Paper Making which has turned out to be a rewarding challenge.
|After living in Anchorage, Alaska for 22 years my husband Steve and I have returned to the Pacific Northwest where we were born and raised.
Living in Anchorage is a “wonder filled” experience. We leave a Maritime environment and a closely knit Artist Community which were great for us.
And now, settling into Anacortes we find the area to be a healthy blend of our interests.
Having taught Junior High, High School, and at the University level, I find joy empowering others and love to sprinkle the spirit of imagination or “pixie dust” over students.
My artwork has received numerous State, National and International Awards and been accepted into several galleries. Of all the awards “Hue Did It” published in Splash 11, a Northlight Book Series, edited by Rachel Rubin Wolf was a great thrill.
The term “colorists” best describes the energy of my artwork as I enjoy creating bold and bright realities which are in constant flux. . . . “What if?”
