• Fine artist in collage
  • Anacortes, WA.

I am a national collage artist. I have Signature status in The National Collage Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists. I have shown my work in exhibits in the United States and Canada for the past thirty years. I have worked with some of the top artists in Washington and attended University of Washington majoring in art history. I studied with an expert Chinese Brush painter artist for four years and incorporate many of those methods in my work.I love to experiment with oils, acrylics, pastel, encaustic and other water media. Painting is pure joy for me. When it extends to others enjoying what I produce that is wonderful. I like people to look and see what they can in my work.It's a journey for them and I don't like to guide it to much. . I love that kind of participation on the part of the viewer and would like for it to continue each and every time they look at a painting.
