Utah’s natural places are my daily inspiration. Raised on the East Coast, I moved west for the outdoor beauty. Watercolor is my response to the mountains and canyons of western landscapes that I have experienced during hikes, backpacks and river trips. Through watercolor I attempt to represent the light and colors of the land.  Now retired, I can follow my heart where it leads.

 My work has appeared at Eccles Community Art Center, Red Butte Garden, Bountiful Davis Art Center and the national Paint America competition. I am active in Utah Watercolor Society and participate in its semi-annual shows. My current interest is in outdoor illustrated journaling, which lets me give expression to my daily forays into the natural world around my home.
