My work is directly inspired by nature. I feel at home when I am surrounded by rushing water, tall mountains, peaceful meadows, and the sounds of animals scurrying about. I have worked as a dolphin and whale researcher, an Equine Massage Therapist, and taught children and adults for over seventeen years. These experiences have had a profound impact on my approach to art and my interest in the natural world.
I often begin my work thorough direct observation, and visit locations many times before a painting or drawing is complete. I also enjoy working from my imagination, bringing elemental forms and textures to life. I sell my paintings and accept commissions.
I have done illustration work for the Department of Natural Resources, and children's educational programing and literature. I welcome illustration projects pertaining to the natural world or children's publishing. Each day is a new adventure, and I hope you will join me as I capture the sights and sounds of our beautiful world through art.
