Over the years I have expressed my creativity through a variety of mediums. I’ve been a serious amateur photographer for many years. Recently, I discovered the joy of pastel painting and find that these two interests complement each other. I also enjoy creating collage/mixed media projects.
After a 40-year career in the mental health field, I feel fortunate to be able to now immerse myself in the arts. As a member of Yosemite Western Artists, I participate in YWA’s Photography group and Plein Air outings. I am also a signature member of the Alliance of California Artists. I’ve been delighted that my work has received recognition and won awards in shows sponsored by YWA, ACA, and the Clovis Art Guild.
I consider myself fortunate to live on the Fresno River in the Sierra foothills with Yosemite National Park as my “backyard.” This inspiring environment provides limitless subjects to explore creatively. With my pastels, I enjoy expressing myself in a rather spontaneous style and take pleasure in sharing my unique interpretations and vision with others. Landscapes will always appeal to me but I also like to be challenged with subject matter that is somewhat unexpected, such as tractors and galaxies!
