Artist Statement

My recent larger paintings are inspired by nature.  I work from photos or memories of hikes and walks in the Austin area.   I want to loosely paint a scene that captures my eye or recreate a feeling from a certain place.  



Education: BA in Psychology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 1984

Continuing Education art classes 1987-1990                                                 School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston                                     Massachusetts College of Art, Boston

After working to draw and paint realistically, I began to paint landscapes.  I raised 3 children with my husband in Austin, TX, and did mural painting for 10 years before returning to painting on canvas. 


My paintings are in private collections in Texas, Michigan and Massachusetts and have sold in galleries, art fairs and at open studio events.
