Inspired by nature, I strive to capture and share the essence of whatever
drew me to a particular place. I’m especially attracted to the lighting,
textures, and moods of country roads, wetlands, woods, and fields. The
beauty and uniqueness I see in the everyday compels me to draw this
fascinating world around us.

I work with pastels which are very versatile and allow for drawing
techniques and flat, brush-like strokes. I love color and often exaggerate
the variety and brilliance of what I see. I begin by loosely establishing the
overall composition with large abstract shapes and then apply layers of
pastel as I develop value, texture and detail.

I received a B.A. in art from Eastern Michigan University. I participated in
my first art fair in 2003 and continue to do 3 a year. I have received several
awards, including having one of my pastels as the featured art for
promotional items/advertising for the 2004 State Street Area Art Fair, Ann
Arbor, Michigan. I am a member of The Great Lakes Pastel Society, The
Michigan Guild, Ann Arbor Women Artists, Chelsea Painters, and Ann
Arbor Area Pastelists.
