Personal History

The past 40+ years, since my art school education, have included: Drawing (& Pottery Dept. Chairman - Spokane Art School (1978-1981); Interior Design consultant - Conference Design Group in Seattle and, Meadowridge Condominiums in Kent, WA (1983-1985); substitute teacher in the Lake Washinton School Dist./Kirkland, WA; Office Mgr. - Vanderbyl Design San Franciso; Showroom Mgr. - Gunlocke furniture - San Franciso; Architecture & Design rep - Johnson Group, San Francisco; and most recently (the last 18 years) as a real estate agent - Remax Foothill Properties, Amador County, CA. 
Retiring just last year, and moving back to my home state of WA, I have now a profound desire to follow my passion for art, making it, and chasing after any opportunities that will allow me to be hands-on involved in a creative process.

Artist Statement

My work is a combination of acrylic painting, collage, found objects, and printed images, often multi-layered to create depth and translucency, and taking inspiration from those colors and textures found in nature's surroundings. My paintings are less a 'serene-scape' and more a congregation of dismantled and askew environments that reflect only hints of conventional reality. Images, numbers and words are tattooed and layered in acrylic, charcoal, graphite, paper and more to form a story, without barriers, rather using unlimited mediums. Most recently I have been drawn to a pervasive theme of 'houses/ dwellings' throughout my work. No doubt this comes from my recent background in real estate, but also, in using bits and pieces of various structures that could be barns, boathouses or bird nests -for example - I create an ethereal collaged environment, reminiscent of years past with rough and broken images, but representing the fundamental aspects of shelter and stability in a 'home' for all living creatures.
