I paint in oil because I love the process. Oil produces crisp bright colors that feel cheery to me. I like to use different styles to produce a feeling along with an image. Sometimes realistic, some scenes seem more impressionistic, sometimes the colors and shapes become abstract. Every canvas is an adventure,
I live in Stinson Beach, Ca. My studio is in the Hamilton Art Center in Novato, Ca. I spent many years as a nurse in Colorado. We moved to the Bay Area in 2001 where I attended Marin Art School and began painting in earnest. I have exhibited in Marin and San Francisco.
