I feel very lucky to have grown up in a beautiful town in northern Michigan just blocks away from Lake Michigan. Fresh water, wide-open beaches with sand dunes, expansive forests and rolling farm fields surrounded the area.

In addition, both of my parents loved to garden.  They had a magical touch and transformed our backyard into a flower-filled oasis. 

All of this instilled in me a fascination and appreciation of nature.  I grew into a gardener myself and am continually amazed at the miracle of spring after a cold, snowy winter.

I’ve always loved to create in many forms, including drawing, stained glass, pottery, interior design, gardening, and cooking.  Now, bright, bold paintings are my way of sharing the joy of nature. 

Flowers and dogs are among my favorite topics to paint.  I'm also happy to work with clients to create commissioned work.
