Inspired by the color, 3-dimensional forms and ultimately, the grace of nature, my art often takes a closer look at elements commonly seen in everyday life. I've worked extensively in concrete through my sculpted Koi Fish series, 3-dimensional felted wool sculptures, and most recently I've explored the rich colors and fluidity of painting on silk, both wearable, and wall-mounted pieces.
I enjoy exploring different mediums to discover new techniques while pushing each medium to extremes. I equally enjoy sharing what I've learned with others through community art classes. I often team up with local artist, Sue Watcher and offer classes through multiple venues. Each class is an opportunity to find and develop your own unique style while sharing time with others.
Currently, I'm working in Dyed Silk, Felted Wool, and Acrylic Painting. I'm having a ton of fun leading Paint Nights in Centralia, Olympia, Yelm, Toledo, Mossyrock, Morton, and doing private paint parties and classes at Rectangle Gallery and private residences.
I teach silk painting, felting, and more detail orientated acrylic painting.
