My work is inspired by nature, particularly in National Parks, having lived in and visited so many.  I am an avid outdoorswoman, and always have my camera in my pocket when I am out hiking, biking, kayaking, or otherwise exploring. Since I am usually on the move when I am outdoors, I most often work later from the photographs I take while I am out adventuring. My watercolor technique is very detail-oriented, and I usually spend many hours on a painting, so working later from my photos works better for me.  I love to paint not only the larger landscapes but also the intimate landscapes, focusing on the many small wonders all around us that most people don’t notice. When I am outside, I am always looking for that next painting!

Nature recharges my soul, and I hope that my art will help others to see the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us all.  Awareness and appreciation will hopefully lead to the desire to protect, preserve, and care for this fragile planet we dwell on!
