I am a recovering attorney who began drawing and painting in 2008. I paint in oils, encaustic, watercolors and pastels. I am largely self-taught but I have taken numerous classes from accomplished artists including Katheryn Statts, Mitchell Albala, James Moore, Ann Belov, Deon Matzen, Annette Hanna, Barbara Marks, Dottie Sanders, Stephanie Schuman, Frank Francese and others. I get my inspiration from the beautiful scenery of Whidbey Island and other natural surroundings. I paint primarily landscapes though have painted many portraits for family. I hope that my paintings can provide others with inspiration to find their own creative pursuit. Painting brings me great joy and peace. I believe that everyone can learn more about themselves through the process of creating. I reside in Coupeville, WA.
