I live and create

in the beautiful Pacific Northwest

and the mountains and the river lands

that surround my home

are my constant inspiration. 

I share my art in workshops throughout the United States and have had my work shown and been published internationally.

I also teach online workshops to students who are from all over the world.

Let me help you find your magic


Sharing my passion

I have often thought what greater way for an artist to share their passion about the art that they love than to teach. When I think and talk about teaching, I am really talking about being a guide. I love to learn new methods and processes and to teach them, but when I am teaching I feel that I am a guide. A guide to helping you tell your own story through art, a muse to inspire you, and a vessel of inspiration for you to draw from. What I love about my own teachers is that by believing in me, they helped me believe in myself.


What still remains

On My Worktable

Renewal: the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again; the state of being renewed

Before I begin a project I love to collect and spread out small objects that inspire me. I take a walk through our gardens and under the trees. I cut a flower, pick up a stick or feather, and find a leaf or stone that calls to me and bring them into my studio. Then I spread them out carefully and arrange them, intuitively and almost without thinking...and shoot some photos. This is what you see here, from different days or months at my home in River Garden Studio. This process helps connect me to the earth, the seasons, and helps me feel renewed.

Storytelling with collage


Every collage has a tale to tell.

Tell your story in paper, fabric, and objects collected from your world. Storytelling With Collage will inspire you to capture your poetic thoughts, fond memories and passionate daydreams in a soft and simple style. Using simple tools and supplies that delight you, you'll learn to work with a variety of prompts and will discover how each element you select--from small shells collected on your last trip to the pretty paper you unwrapped from a recent gift--has its own part of a complete narrative. Nine collage prompts will walk you step-by-step through a collage creation as you work with textured papers, fabric, stitching, found objects, images, natural materials, color, wax and metal.


Color and light

Everything comes together

taking me back

Earth symbols dance in my head

from a distant land

The artist is a receptacle for emitions that come from all over the place:
from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, form a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
— Pablo Picasso
