Transporting the viewer to a peaceful scene is the focus of my paintings. Harmonizing color and simplifying shapes are other ways of reducing ‘clutter’ in imagery and creating serenity.

In 2018, I moved from Seattle, Washington to the historic town of Jacksonville, Oregon where my studio is no longer two blocks from Puget Sound – but one block from the concert sound of the Britt Music Festival.  It’s a beautiful environment from which to draw inspiration.
