I LOVE to paint trees, florals and landscapes!
My motto is "A great day for me is one with dirt or paint on my hands"!
If you are interested in your own commission, contact me.
I have a recap of the process on my blog, September 2020
I am a life-long Alaskan, talented artist and involved community member who works on and with many boards, non-profits and individuals.
My creations are bright and fun and reflect the Alaskan spirit of celebration in every season and event. Before I started my art career at age 50, I spent my spare time digging in the dirt and cultivating my gardens. "A great day for me is one with paint or dirt on my hands".
I work in many diverse mediums and have an eclectic assortment of fun and colorful creations. My range includes ‘serious masterpiece’ art, Alaskan Iconic Art, African Art, portraits, flora and fauna, scenery, abstracts and still life. And window paintings and murals …just for fun!
I am a member of the Alaska Art Guild, Alaska Watercolor Society, Fairbanks Arts Association, and Kachemak Bay Watercolor Society. I keep busy by showing my work in many venues around the state. My are hangs internationally in homes, private collections and hospitals. My hope is that my art captures your heart and reflects the joy and happiness I experienced as I created them.
I donate 10 percent of my annual art sales to Alzheimer's Resource of Alaska, in memory of my mom.
They are a wonderful agency helping families. I am also a national Alzheimer's Research Advocate.
