representational abstraction and Asian art. Early in her career, she did
studies at the home owned by celebrated northwest mystic painter Morris
Graves. In 2006 she won the Bellingham Arts Commission city wide
competition for a weathervane design titled "Beet Spirit". It’s a 9'x4'
beet that sits atop Bellingham's Depot Market Square clock tower. In
2009 she was accepted to a National Juried Exhibition at Axis Gallery
juried by Janet Bishop the curator for SFMOMA.
She loves to
create, be it a garden, a painting, a piece of knitting or her
miniature, hand painted jewelry “watches” that she calls “lose all track
of time”. She uses a limited palette and scumble as well as glazing
techniques for the paintings in her “watches just as she would for a
larger painting. She adds found objects and upcycled beads and glass to
her jewelry to create a finished, one of a kind piece. Her work has
been used in place of rings exchanged at weddings and are well suited to
