My home studio is located in Marysville Washington, the beautiful evergreen state. I paint in various mediums, acrylic, mix media, watercolor, and oil. I have always loved art from a young age but only sketched and painted here and there while raising my family. I worked in the financial industry for 20 years. After retiring early with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I found my joy in art almost everyday and began to use my art as a method of healing. Taking my mind on wonderful adventures. I am inspired by people, animals, flowers, nature, wildlife, and the whimsical side of life, basically all our beautiful world has to offer. I gravitate toward bright colors they make my heart dance. I hope that my art does many things, inspires someone, brings joy, raises a smile, touch's an emotion and makes people think about our wonderful world, and all the creatures who live in it. I hope you enjoy my work.
