For as long as I can remember, I have spent every moment possible creating something.
I spent hours coloring, then drawing and eventually creating my own comic strips. My interest in photography entered the scene in high school and soon became a beloved creative outlet.
In college, I expanded my interests and explored the world of watercolor, merging my photography with a newfound passion for the remarkable medium.
Following retirement in 2018 from two rewarding careers, in Veterinary Medicine and in Occupational Therapy, I joined the Yakima Valley Art Association to connect with the local art culture.
Now with more time to spare and my camera in hand, I can be found where I am most inspired. My inspiration comes from nature and all things from the natural world.
I look forward to putting more miles on my paint brush and with courage, continue to create.
