I'm a native of the Pacific Northwest. Originally from Oregon, we moved to Washington State in 1988, and to Camano Island, Washington in 2004.

Watercolor Landscapes I paint from life, sometimes "Plein Aire" and sometimes from memory and reference photographs. I like to combine resources to capture the light and energy of a subject.

Current Work I'm always adding new paintings, fresh off my painting board. Check back regularly to see whats new!
