I create realistic depictions of nature and the stuff of everyday life using pencil, pen, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. I love the design, complexity, and beauty of creation and the natural world.  Attempting to recreate it in two dimensions is a continuous challenge and joy. My decades of painting pictures with words (as a writer) have, in the last few years, morphed into art--a surprising and exciting change of focus for this season of my life.


My habit of always carrying a camera with me on walks has given me an archive of thousands of photos which I use as references for my paintings. “Anything can be drawn and it becomes beautiful once it’s on the page,” says sketch journal artist Samantha Dion Baker. My hope is that my art will open the eyes of the viewer to the extraordinary beauty in the ordinary world that surrounds us.
