Painting is my voice, my art is my story.  It is not only  a visual record, but an emotional reaction to the elements around me.  Stopping to paint a scene allows me to become a part of it, to hear it, see it, smell it, feel it and to react to it.  It is the process of painting that gives me joy, lets me learn and give back.  


Other Stuff

I sometimes enter "plein air events" and shows.  Once every couple of years I have a studio show here.  I also teach workshops, both here and internationally. To learn more about the artist, her CV and to enroll in workshops or classes please visit her website at:
