Inspired by Nature
I grew up in the Columbia River Gorge, immersed in nature. To this day, nature is my muse.
My mother, an exceptional artist, led me gently and taught me a wide variety of art forms. By junior high, I worked in oils. A favorite memory is standing at my easel, she at hers, the paints between us. Mom taught me that a compelling picture happens when the artist is emotionally connected and paints with conviction.
I attended WSU to study business, not art. Turned out the painting commissions I did for students not only helped make ends meet but taught basic business protocols.
My career was in finance/economics for 27 years. Retired, I re-entered the world of art and now enjoy working in three sectors: Gallery Art (On the Edge Gallery, Scottsdale AZ), Commission Art (clients from coast to coast), and Instruction (Private and Osher Lifelong Learning @ ASU).
My painting styles are realism, impressionism, and surrealism. I paint with oils or acrylics depending on the subject and client preference. Frames are wood.
Giclée – It is All About the Color! The Giclée [Zhee-klay] is a refined printing process used to produce fine-art, limited edition prints of original art commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Museo Art makes mine on a 12 color plus UV coating printer.
Commissions – Your Home, Your Office, Have it Your Way! Need a special piece for a gift or unusual sized wall? It is a pleasure to work with clients to capture their vision, produce the desired emotional response. I communicate clearly and am flexible while maintaining aesthetic integrity.
Enjoy your visit through the galleries! Please Note: Prices and availability can change without notice.
