I am an oil painter specializing in landscape painting. By trade, I was an Art Director for 15 years in San Francisco until I moved with my husband and three children from the bay area to the desert. I began painting as a creative outlet. The move to Henderson, Nevada was to be a two-year stint, which has now become an 22 year, and counting... adventure.My deep appreciation for the natural beauty of the landscape came from my childhood spent riding my horse and hiking in the hills of southern Marin County. My interests in nature fit my desire to paint in the "plein air" movement. And to replicate landscapes near and dear to my heart. Water, Mt. Tamalpais, Moisture, San Francisco, Fog, etc.

My work is influenced by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Edgar Payne and Fairfield Porter. I admire these painters because they were able to capture the essence of a scene with the least amount of detail; yet still capture the mood of the moment.
Besides my two degree's in Fine Art and Graphic Design from University of Oregon and The Art Center College of Design, I've studied painting with landscape painters Scott Christensen in Taos and Jackson, Matt Smith at the Scottsdale Artist School, Kevin Macpherson, Randy Sexton, James Kroner, and Carl Purcell in Zion National Park. I'm excited to be a part of DPW.
