About The Artist
I spent my childhood growing up in the National Parks, my Dad was a National Park Service Ranger. We lived in places like the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Grand Canyon and Mesa Verde. I’ve been fortunate to live in beautiful areas as an adult as well. My husband, Greg and I have lived in Marin, along the Richardson Bay, going on nine years. I’m naturally drawn, to explore, as an artist, the complex beauty of the landscape in all of it’s abstract qualities. Concepts of Abstraction go far beyond what I see in front of me; it is a way for me to study the mystery of life. There is more here than meets the eye.
