My two loves in life have always been art and medicine . . . medicine, my sustenance and art my passion! >My artistic "voice" emerged at a fairly early age and encouraging parents and teachers kept it going . . . . Fast forward . . . after 30 years experience in medicine I retired in 2005 to concentrate full time on painting. Interviews include "Found on Flootie" and reviews in Artist Marketing Resources and five WA state publications by New York artist, writer and critic Maria Kazalia, July 2015 and recently in the international arts publication, "Art Chowder" magazine. My work hangs in private homes across the U.S. (and China) the Winthrop Historical Museum, Give Love Hearts Project for the Ronald McDonald House, SWS Juried/Member / Signature Members' shows at the NW MAC annually, the Land Trust Bldg., annually, the NEW William Grant Gallery in Kendall Yards annual solo show and as a resident artist, also a recent member of NWWS and American Women Artists. I teach privately here in my home studio gallery and conduct workshops on location and am now illustrating my first childrens' book as well! You are welcome to visit at any time by appointment.
