Making art is how I translate the world into something I can understand. My current art focus is drawing and watercolor, but my understanding of composition and value evolved first from photography. I taught myself black-and-white photography as a pre-teen, learning through experimentation and observation. I also work in textiles, building narrative with fiber using embroidery, appliqué and found item collage. I earned a Fine Arts minor as part of my college degree. 
 
My art has hung in solo shows and juried exhibitions, in galleries and coffee shops, on Bainbridge Island, in Port Townsend and in Bellingham. Locally my work has appeared at the Jansen Art Center, Village Books and the Colophon Cafe.
 
I’ve learned that creating art in any form makes one look more deeply and examine more closely the life around us. Developing new techniques while honing my skills helps me more fully appreciate the diversity of life I have yet to explore.
 
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
