Welcome and thanks for visiting my site. I hope you will come back soon to view my latest creations featuring nature's beauty, colors, and wildlife.
I am a watercolor artist, and I find my inspiration in nature's beauty, colors, wildlife, as well as people and domestic animals. My intention is to paint and preserve delightful and memorable moments in time. I find the creative process very satisfying and compelling. Watercolors are my artistic focus, as I am attracted to their water-based consistency, and luminosity.
Drawings and paintings have fascinated and inspired me ever since I was a child. I began my painting journey early in life working with oils, acrylics, and occasionally watercolors. In recent years, I re-discovered watercolors, and took to them immediately. I had accumulated numerous watercolor books from wonderful artists for many years, and I began studying them in earnest. Also, I have been able to devote much more time to my passion for painting, since I retired a few years ago. As you can see from my gallery, most of my watercolor paintings are a combination of realistic subjects with soft impressionistic backgrounds. Much of my inspiration comes from my garden, pets, nature walks, and travels.
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’s Artists, I have participated in juried exhibits and have exhibited my paintings at several local organizations in the Ann Arbor 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 enthusiastic about helping bluebirds thrive, which 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 giclée print from this site. The print sizes I recommend are approximately 8' x 10' for my smaller size paintings, or 11' x 14' for my larger size paintings. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or requests. Thank you for your interest in my art work!
