I was born in Ohio and have lived in Oregon since 1985. My husband and I raised our two boys (the “World’s Cheapest Models”) in Eugene, a wonderful College town centrally located between the Oregon Coast and Cascade Mountains. I hope to expand my workshops into other countries, as well as offer small group workshops in my Eugene, Oregon studio starting in 2021. I am a member of: Coos Art Museum, Daily Paintworks, Emerald Art Center, Maude Kerns Art Center, New Zone Art Center, Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, and Plein Air Painters of Lane County. I have permanent installations in the Gordon Hotel in Eugene, Oregon, and in Mercy Hospital in Roseburg Oregon. I have won many awards in my career, the latest being the Umpqua Plein Air – Hallie Brown Ford Gallery Award of Merit Room 2019.
