My goal is to create images with my paintings that beckon the observer to step closer and see the beauty and expressive use of rich, lovely color that flows throughout my work.


I was born and raised in Denver and have been painting for nearly three decades. I am an active member of the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of Colorado, and the Art Students League of Denver.


I am fueled by beauty and vibrancy and my art is an expression of my love for nature, things that bud, grow, then die...each stage rendering "new eyes" and feelings. I paint how and what I feel and see.
