Northern light, land and life through an artist's heart
Sensitive colors, harmonious design, wonder about wild life and land, and quiet moments in the northern light and land describe my artwork. I have experienced painting as a way of seeing deeper into the precious gift of life we each have as I observe the living creatures and environments around me.
I grew up observing and sketching the sunsets over Anchorage from my mountain side home. At Hillsdale College in Michigan, I took one design class and was immediately found a language my heart knew but had yet to learn the technical skills to express. I have ever since been creating, teaching and taking classes between Alaska, Europe and Miami. My work now focuses on the every changing beauty and wild places of Turnagain Arm near Anchorage, Alaska. My two children are a continual encouragement and source of creative inspiration, and they are my greatest works of art.
I currently teach private workshops and classes on design and art, paint on commission, and show at various galleries and fairs. Contact me to schedule a commission or workshop. I am certified teacher and enjoying sharing my love of art and design to help others find more joy in the world around them.
