Always a lover of the outdoors and the beauty of nature, painting “en plein air” provides a creative energy and excitement for her paintings. The changing light, color and values are a great teacher.
In addition to painting on location, she paints in her studio. Inspiration comes from extensive travel. Her favorite places include the southeast, California, Washington, Alaska, Arizona, Spain, Greece, Italy, Germany and Thailand. She finds beauty watching a sunrise or sunset, in a field, by a river or ocean and in the woods or desert. She paints mostly in oil and also enjoys pastel.
