Artist Statement Thanks for visiting! I live in North Bend, Washington. My favorite painting and drawing mediums are oils, pen and ink, pencils, watercolor and that order! I consider myself a portrait/figure painter that is always experimenting with other things like still life, landscape and animals because I love to learn!

I began my classical art training in college with hopes of an art degree but I was too impatient and decided to look for quality workshops instead. My two favorite instructors were Tom Sherwood (2 years of a very intense study on the figure) and Ned Mueller (several workshops) who encouraged a strong emphasis on values. I have also been guilty of facilitating my own figure group for a year.

Here's a list of Workshops, Schools I've attended and On-line courses:
Lewis Clark State College
Graphic Arts and Reproductions- Lewiston Vo-tech
Bellingham Vo-tech-calligrahy, illustration
Tom Sherwood -The Drawing Class
Ned Mueller- Portraits and Plein Air

I worked in an art gallery for a few years selling my paintings there as well and learning how to frame, so helpful! I encouraged my children to live life by my favorite saying: Work Hard, Play Hard and Pray Hard, if it's worth doing at all, it's worth doing well! Finally here I am, one tube of paint at a time, a little studio and selling paintings!! I am very thankful for my family, my art experiences and all the friendships I've made along the way and for my Spiritual relationship with Jesus who has been my rock!
