I began painting after careers in tax accounting and biochemistry; I guess that’s just about as far from art as you could get.  But a love of drawing and painting as a child and teen stayed with me until time permitted, and from the moment I took my first class as an early retiree, I was committed to learning everything I could about painting.   It seems like magic that with a squeeze of paint, good brushes, and a receptive surface, you can tell a story.  The hope of pulling off that little miracle every now and then is what brings me to my studio almost every day. 


Finding beauty in the details has led me to a realistic style, and I am drawn to bold values and intricate patterns.   I have studied with some of Colorado and Arizona’s best artists and am continually looking for ways to improve my craft.  I am a Fellow, Board member and Treasurer of the American Society of Marine Artists, a Signature member of the Oil Painters of American and a Signature Member of American Women Artists.   I have been published in Fine Art Connoisseur and International Artist magazine.    My husband Dave and I split our time between Colorado and Arizona.
