Sausalito, CA

Growing up on the South Plains of Texas where a tree is a rare sight indeed, I developed a great respect and a good deal of awe upon encountering a tree. Much of my body of work has been devoted to images of trees. Versatility and experimentation have formed my work over the years. Utilizing paint, mixed media, sculpture and computer technology to create works, I have also developed large and small-scaled installations. Fascinated by texture, my work often assumes an organic quality. I am inspired by the general human condition, including issues related to ecology, spirituality, gender, race, cross-cultural connections, and geopolitical power struggles. Despite the seeming gravity of some of these subjects, I attempt to render my work in ways that invite interest through beauty and humor.

I was born in Texas and received a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University. After working in the advertising and public relations industry, I began my art career in the 1980’s. I have exhibited extensively in the U.S., as well as group shows in Hong Kong, Paris, Mexico, Japan, Korea and Italy. My work has twice been chosen for “Selections” a juried competition of San Francisco Open Studios. I am a past nominee for the SF MOMA SECA award and the U.S. Art in Embassies Program selected my paintings for exhibition. I have been a member of the Alliance of Women Artists, an international coalition of women artists dedicated to the support of women in the visual arts. I participated as an American artist member for twelve years in the Global Culture Center, founded by Japanese sculptor, Kenji Horiuchi and dedicated to promotion of an international exchange of art and culture.
