About The Artist

Thank you for visiting my Artist Page!

I am an Oil Painter, Art Educator, and office staff member of Methow Arts Alliance.  I also help out at my husband’s design/manufacturing business eqpd gear.  Since moving to the Methow Valley, from New Hampshire, I have discovered my passion for using the rich colors of oil paint to recreate brilliant scenes that offer viewers an experience as if they are there.  My paintings provide an escape from the busy modern world into the quiet mountain views so many of us long for.  I want to promote land conservation, preserving public lands, and making changes to fight the climate crisis.  I’d be overwhelmed in life if I couldn’t rejuvenate in wild places.

I’ve also created meaningful commissioned paintings for people using their photos.  Customers often give these paintings as a thoughtful Birthday, Anniversary, Graduation, or Wedding gift.  We work together to choose a size, budget, and frames.
