I love to tell a visual story re-creating glistening waterfalls or the mystery of a boat's reflective shadows. My water media compositions express many various rhythms, hues, and moods appropriate to their real and imaginary subjects. Having studied under well known N.Y. abstraction painters, I recognize their influence on my use of line, color and space. Subsequent graduate studies at the University of Washington and U.P.S., years of teaching and administration and numerous family travel experiences are all reflected in my work. Currently, my perceptions can be viewed in Puget Sound and northern Idaho galleries and shows, as well as in private collections nationwide.
