See You at the Fair!

2018-07-18 The Lane County Fair opens today and now is your chance to see "Lila's Day at the Beach" and "Dorena Reservoir" in person! This is the first time in twenty years that I have shown my artwork in a public forum. It has been a very exciting and extremely nerve racking time for me. The hardest part was leaving my babies (that's how I think of my paintings) alone with strangers. I know that they are in capable hands but it was still very difficult. The second hardest was choosing among them. It's hard to have a favorite!

New Website Design!

2018-04-29 I am truly excited to announce the release of our brand-new website design. For many years, I've felt like the proverbial cobbler with barefoot children but today my child has new shoes! There is more to come so please check back. Click the links at the bottom of the page to follow me on social media.

Latest Artwork

"Purple Hill Sunset"

Purple Hill SunsetThis was painted during the “2018 North Douglas County Fair’s Art Car and Fire Fest” which was my first foray into the realm of art shows. It was an certainly not within my comport zone and being able to break out the paints certainly helped my nerves a bit!

Painting outside in 90+ degree temps presents certain challenges not present under studio settings. The most obvious of those being keeping the paper moist for wet-in-wet painting! I was happy to have a little spray bottle to help keep water on the paper. This was a dance of moisture and pigment that I don’t believe I would have been comfortable with a few months ago. Spending time to work with clouds has helped in achieving a more fluid painting style and mindset.
