I find my creative inspiration comes from nature and all her shapes, colours and beauty. When I paint, I feel as if I am swallowed up in a different world. Going on a new hike or climbing a new mountain or feeling the power of the ocean and hearing the sounds of nature allow me to engage in a practice of discovery and renewal. My art is a direct reflection of my surroundings and the secret place that exists within my creative mind, a place I can escape to and a place I am happy to be lost within.
Wetland is a beautiful place filled with life.
I admire the many colors, shapes and textures of wetlands. Finding inspiration was easy. I hope you enjoy this vibrant slice of heaven.
The many shades of green is the forest I love.
A sacred place I walk through with care,
A place where my mind wonders, contemplates, and dreams. Forest is a wishing well for me. A place where fairies live. Rich moist moss, lush ferns, trees that touch the sky and streams that bring life. Forest is where my heart is filled with love and my imagination runs free and wild.
When I was a little girl I use to pick mushrooms in the forest with my grandmother.
They are truly a tasty treasure found hiding in the thick moss or buried under the leaves. This painting was inspired by my found memories of hunting for mushrooms. As an referance and inspiration I used a beautiful photograph taken by a fellow artist from the west coast.
Rich colors of gold, orange and red
Sunset hour is here
The sky is on fire
I welcome this blissful site
I stare at this grant mountain ever day thinking to myself,
I will mount you one day soon,
Just need to get in better shape.
I See You
Gold grass is my hiding spot,
But I see you,
Stearing back at me,
I am calm as he is,
Observing with admiration
The King of the Grasses
I rule this hill,
I own these grasses,
My heart belongs to these woods.
This is my kingdom,
I am the king.
The Soft Side of Me
Queen Anne's Lace
you bring the soft side of me.
With pearl color petals,
You stand taller then any other wild flower treasure.
Bliss can be a private treasure,
I dare you to look closely.
Open your mind, feel with your heart,
and you will find your bliss.

Glorious Autum smiles at me,
The leaves shine bold and bright,
Red, yellow, orange,
My favorite season is here.
Rich in ink, bold shapes, strong textures from brush strokes, I wanted this piece to be alive, stormy, filled with movement. It could be landscape from our valley or not so far memory of West Coast ...you decide.
3 am magic
3 am Magic,
explosion of bold colors,
layers of bubbles,
It's a good thing I stopped painting at 3am.
Lost in the Moment
Lost in a moment,
What do we miss if we constantly are living in the past, or desperately racing into the future.
We must take those precious moments,
and truly live them to the fullest.
