Artist, Instructor, Creativity Coach


I find my greatest joy in painting and discovering new ways to express myself artistically.

As an avid plein air painter, I recently celebrated a 100-day streak of capturing life’s moments on paper.

Watercolor is my preferred medium for its ability to convey the ephemeral beauty of life.

I live on the Oregon coast with my painting buddy Ellie, a beach-loving yellow labrador retriever.
