She mainly works in oil and is a founding member of the Plein Air Painters of Idaho and a member of the Oil Painters of America. Her work is in collections throughout the U.

“I believe creating art in some ways exposes a society to itself and allows me as an artist to divulge my impressions of the world. I as the artist use my discretion to create what I want to reveal. This evolution results from paying closer attention to my artistic process with each painting and how paint can bring depth, character and content to a flat surface.”

“I enjoy mixing and moving the paint around, whether on my palette or directly on the canvas. I am not afraid to mix new colors or try new techniques because even an unsuccessful painting may push me in a new and exciting direction. I find the more I develop my artistic process, the more I learn about being an artist and the powerful communication I can convey through my paintings.”
