The contrast of light and shadow often grabs my attention, but it is the variety of textures
and colors found in nature that continues to inspire me. I am most interested in capturing
the moods and beauty I find in the quiet, everyday places of my life.

I work primarily in pastels which are very versatile and allow for drawing techniques and
flat, brush-like strokes. I begin by loosely establishing the overall composition with large
abstract shapes and then apply layers of pastel as I develop color, value and texture.

I received a B.A. in art from Eastern Michigan University. I have participated in art fairs
since 2003 and continue to do three a year. I have received several awards, including
having one of my pastels as the featured art for promotional items and advertising for
the 2004 State Street Art Fair, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I am a member of the Great Lakes Pastel Society, The Michigan Guild, Ann Arbor
Women Artists, Chelsea Painters and Ann Arbor Pastelists.
