Fine Art and Illustration
Welcome to my Galleries!
I enjoy creating art that inspires the viewer to giggle. I like happy art. My paintings and drawings have an element of whimsy. I work with watercolor, acrylic, ink, pastels, colored pencil and collage. My work is a little bit of realism, a bit of abstract impressionism and very colorful.
I have been painting all of my life. I began by watching my artist mother be creative at the kitchen table. My inspiration comes from growing up in Kansas and Oregon, traveling in Europe, sailing in the Northwest, having a husband who is a natural adventurer and raising two amazing sons.
Lately, I have discovered a new and fun way to use my dried up pallets in paintings. I simply cut pieces of the pallet, selecting colors and placing them like a mosaic for buildings in the scene. I finish with pen and ink to add detail using my drawing ability. It makes the buildings pop!
I have created note cards from many of my paintings. The original paintings are available for sale and displayed in the gallery pages. If you see artwork and note card designs that interest you, please contact me.
I would love to hear from you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone is 503-510-6974. Thank you for visiting.
