Welcome and thanks for visiting my site. I hope you will come back soon to view my latest creations.
I am a Michigan artist that paints with a brush, and I find my inspiration in nature's beauty, colors, and wildlife, especially birds and hummingbirds. My intention is to paint and preserve delightful and memorable moments in time. I find the creative process very satisfying and compelling. I am attracted to watercolors for their water-based consistency and luminosity. I am attracted to acrylics for their water-based consistency, vibrant colors, flexibility, and the ability to paint on canvas.
Drawings and paintings have fascinated and inspired me ever since she I was a child. I began my painting journey early in life working with oils, acrylics, and occasionally watercolors. My mother instilled in me an appreciation for art, especially original paintings, pointing out how you can see their brush strokes. My father instilled a practical side to me, and I followed a business career path for many years. In recent years, I have been able to devote much more time to my passion for painting. I rediscovered watercolors, and took to them immediately. I began taking watercolor workshops and classes, and painting regularly, and have been continually inspired to grow in that medium. I continually work on developing my process, and each painting takes planning and pre-work before a finalized version is completed. Most of my watercolor paintings are a combination of realistic subjects with soft impressionistic backgrounds. Much of my inspiration comes from my flower garden, birds, pets, nature walks, and travels. Recently, I've become interested in painting with acrylics and have been enjoying them immensely.
I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork. I appreciate any constructive feedback on my work. I invite you to send me your comments, or any requests you have. I am available for commissioned art work, and if you are interested, please contact me.
As a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists, and Brighton Art Guild, I have participated in juried exhibits and have exhibited my paintings at several local organizations in the Ann Arbor and Brighton area. My paintings can be found in private collections in the US and abroad. I've been a member of the Michigan Bluebird Society for several years now, and am passionate about helping bluebirds thrive. They are a favorite subject for me to paint.
The way this site works is by selecting a gallery below and clicking on any image, so it expands for a better view. Please note that watermarks do not appear on final art pieces. My watercolor paintings look best printed on watercolor paper, so I recommend that paper selection when you decide to order a giclee from this site. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or requests. Thank you for your interest in my art work!
