Oil painting is my passion. Although steered away from it in my late teens, I rediscovered my Artist in adulthood. For the past two years, I have been working with a professional teacher and mentor, who has over 40 years of experience. I love falling in love with my Artist, and allowing that love to express through my Art.

I am involved with the Kirkland Arts Center. They are a wonderful Arts Community! I have taken classes and volunteered there, been involved with KAST (Kirkland Artist Studio Tour) for 2 years, and am honored to be the Presenting Sponsor for KAST 2016 and 2017. 

In my personal life, I enjoy my life with my husband of 20 years and our dog on our farm in Snohomish, Washington. I am blessed with a marvelous Mom and fantastic friends! I strive to see opportunities in life and to be curious about what is beyond the present.
