I have been living and doing art from my studio in Oregon on Chehalem Mountain for the past 22 years. My love of art started as a child growing up in Maine where I loved to observe and explore nature and the out-of-doors.
This love of nature expresses itself in my artwork. Although I paint a variety of subjects, my main focus is on birds and flowers. My paintings are done in watercolor, acrylic and collage.
To obtain subject matter for my art, I take advantage of local parks and zoos, observe birds in the wild and visit wildlife sanctuaries where I take numerous photographs. My travels have taken me throughout Europe and Greece, to bird sanctuaries in India and Nepal, and many other refuges across the United States. I am now in the process of doing a series of work from numerous wildlife photos I took during four weeks of Safari in Africa.
Along with painting on canvas and paper, I also create murals in private homes and businesses. I am a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and I have participated in the Yamhill County Art Harvest Studio Tour since 2003. My work can be seen at Currents Gallery as well as various local venues and at my studio which is open by appointment.
