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.
