Hello New Friend, 

 

Thank you for your interest in my artwork! 

 

For me, art is all about the personal connections found in the process of creating artwork. It is the interaction that informs the feelings expressed in my painting. This holds true for me whether I am painting your portrait or your loved pet's portrait! I want to capture much more than just a likeness, I want to express who it is I am painting. 

 

I have a Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington and a Masters in Psychology from Antioch University. I've practiced as a mental health counselor, art therapist, and art restorationist. These experiences continue to remind me that art is one of the purest forms of self-expression. One that can beautifully connect us all. It is what drives me to reach out and connect with the community around us!

 

My husband and our daughter, along with 2 dogs, live in Seattle, WA.
