I reside in rural Snohomish County, in Washington state. The beauty and unique environment of the Northwest countryside is the inspiration for my landscapes. I am also an animal lover and have drawn or painted them my entire life. I am particularly interested in vibrant color, while maintaining a mood of tranquility in my work. I have created both large and small scale murals, illustrations, logos and architectural renderings. My work has been purchased for many private collections. I’ve been an artist all my life, having always had a pencil, brush or pastel in hand. I am currently working mainly with pastels and occasionally acrylics. I have recently begun a new series of more contemporary landscapes and animal portraits.
