Painting Statement

Artist Statement: 

I am currently working on a series of rock and water paintings that portray the natural beauty of the San Juan Islands. My paintings are often about freezing the movement of water in order to preserve the beauty of a moment in time. I hope to take the viewer to a place of fond memories of long days at the beach, as well as provide a way to bring the ocean with you into your home. To me, painting is all about the preservation of things that are fleeting. My goal through my work is to inspire people to see beauty in the details of the world; savor the color, texture, shapes, and patterns of life bursting forth around us.


Bio: I am a self taught artist, and attended Columbus College of Art and Design for one year. After two decades of raising four children and not having much time to dedicate to my art, I have recently started painting again. I live and paint in Friday Harbor, Washington. My artwork has been included in national and international juried shows in Seattle, WA; Hudson, NY; and Albuquerque, NM. I am represented by Waterworks Gallery in Friday Harbor. My work has been featured in Northlight Books, Best of Drawing, “Strokes of Genius” (2011), and Southwest Art Magazine (December, 2017).
