I've spent my life in the beautiful green Willamette Valley of Oregon. The art focus didn't start until my early 30's when I went back to school and rediscovered an old love neglected since childhood. In 2004, I graduated from Western Oregon University with a BS in Art, focus on Ceramics and Printmaking. Currently my artwork reflects the surrounding natural environment: from native plants and animals to the river and stream ecosystems. Paper has become a primary material used because of its adaptability in both 2-D and 3-D work. 


I live and work in Albany Oregon with my husband Dave of over 20 years, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 1 bird.
