Art is the epitome of human joy in life and creation. Some art is a song of thankfulness and praise to the world. Some art expresses anguish, love, rage, compassion and other deeply felt emotions.

The artist says to the viewer “Do you see?  THIS is what it was like”. It is communication on a deeply spiritual level from one human to another.

Currently obsessed with plein air painting and portraiture, I also have a certificate of botanical illustration, a MS in physics, was a government technology consultant and an elected leader of a small town and was also a stay at home Mom.  The latter was absolutely the most challenging of my many careers.  It is my pleasure and strong desire to continue to evolve as an artist to better express the wonders of our amazing world.
