I have a love of color, design and texture that has helped place me as one of the top artisans in the Oregon and Southern Washington area. My style can range from impressionist to trompe l’oeile, abstract to whimsical.
One of my strengths is the ability to match my style of art to the requests and dreams of clients. I developed a style in decorative finishes that was unique and reflects a love of layered finishes. I love to use a lot of metallics in my work too. The metallics reflect light and creates a sense of luxury.
Subject matter includes as many diverse aspects of life as I can keep up with. I challenge my horizons and viewpoint of the world around us. Passion for art helps me to depict my interpretations of the world as energetically and colorfully as I am capable of.
With over 25 years experience as an impressionist pastel artist and running a studio/gallery, I have successfully run my business and won many top awards for my artwork, throughout North America. Including places such as Connecticut, The Netherlands, Pennsylvania, Oregon and Dallas, Texas and Portland, Oregon.
I have studied pastel painting with Daniel Green, Herman Margulies, PSA, and pastelist, Elizabeth Mowry, PSA. Tromp L’oeil with William Cochran (www.williamcohran.com), and mural techniques with Jennifer Carrasco (www.carrascomurals.com).
