The act of letting the paint play is a constant movement and variation. Most importantly, it's a search for visual rhythm. In the initial layer of my paintings, I create a wash of color that is further thinned out and left to expand. This reaction informs the next layers, creating an organic space for contemplation. I am mainly inspired by nature - how it grows, how it changes, how it functions. What feelings are evoked by different environments? Every painting is an unexpected surprise. 

In 1998, I won the Grand Prize at the George Fox University Art Competition. I studied at Gage Academy of Art and showed work at Best of Gage in 2014 and 2015. In September and October I had a solo show at the Alibi Room. 

I am also an author currently developing a novel and finishing a non-fiction book on the history and sociological impact of religion. My memoir No End Of The Bed is available at most major online retailers. You can also read my blog at where I expound on art, religion, books, feminism, and family.
