About the Artist

Art and the creation of art has been a life-long passion. As much enjoyment as I get from creating art, I like to share that passion with others. Graduating with a degree in Art Education enabled me to teach and share my passion with others which I did in the public school system for over 20 years. With this background in education, I am continuing to offer classes and lessons in my studio at the JL Ranch in Powell Butte, Oregon. I truly enjoy sharing the joy of creativity with others.

Having left public education, I am able to pursue my love of watercolor paintings on a daily basis. The spontaneity and freshness of this transparent medium is the aspect that most appeals to me. My subject matter is diverse but the underlying theme is to capture the moment in a loose, spontaneous technique and approach.
