Its time to make art. My soul is hungry.
 
 

My artwork is an intuitive process of vivid colors and playful experimentation of media and texture.  I have been painting for over 25 years and have always loved to create one-of-a-kind pieces.  I usually start a painting with no expectants of the final product.  I just trust, enjoy the process and let go of doubt.  Painting is in many ways, my teacher and my meditation. 

 

I love combining paints, inks, pastels, pencils, charcoals and papers with found objects or my own photography.  I like to use materials in unconventional ways to create something very unique.  Growing up in the Pacific Northwest has inspired my love for nature.  I am also inspired by my Native American culture.  Please enjoy my shop and feel welcome to contact me or say hello!
