I love painting watercolors that are alive with color and drenched with sunlight.
I am a native Oregonian and have been painting for over 30 years. In addition to being a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society, I am an active member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, Colored Pencil Society of America, Oregon Society of Artists and SPLASH, a professional artist group. I have received national awards from the Northwest Watercolor Society, "Best of Show" from the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts and many awards from the Watercolor Society of Oregon. My paintings are published in Splash Retrospective: 20 Years of Watercolor Excellence (2013), Splash 14 (2013), Splash 12 (2011) and the Watercolor magazine (2005).
I have taught watercolor and colored pencil classes as adjunct faculty for several colleges as well as in workshops in Corvallis and Lake Oswego, Oregon. My artwork can be seen at the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery.
