Artist's Statement

I started painting in watercolors in the early 1990's when my daughter said, "Mom, you can do this!" and lent me some brushes and paints. I took a few classes, and found a wonderful avocation.

I love the grayed colors of the Pacific Northwest: lots of soft blues and greens. The play of light and shadow makes the paintings come alive. Many of my paintings are of water and boats. I traveled along the west coast of Vancouver Island in a kayak long before there were cell phones and instant communication. We were on our own!
Recently I have become president of our new art gallery in Ridgefield, Washington, Alcove Art Gallery (
