I love bridges as aesthetic form – an elegant geometry spanning the ephemera of water and light – and as a metaphor during this tumultuous time. What we build together now will endure long after ourselves, carrying future generations to a brighter shore. The Bridges Series is both a reflection on past adventures and a dream of new ones.
I am interested in the power of landscape to renew and connect us. My work centers on the spaces where we find meaning, strength, peace, and joy. I work en plein air as often as possible to refresh this vision and to connect with the community that loves and shares these spaces. I approach my still-life work with that sense of mindfulness and wonder. I received my art training at Gage Academy and have a PhD from the University of Washington. I live and work in Capitol Hill.
