I’ve been a professional artist for over 20 years combined with former careers as art teacher and architecture librarian.  I have been exhibiting my work mostly in MN with occasional exhibitions in other states.  I received MN State Arts Board grants in 2005 and 2010.  My paintings are in numerous public and private collections.

I do mostly abstract landscape paintings that are inspired by watching nature during changes in light throughout the day and the seasons. My recent series have a layer of text taken from poems used in musical compositions.  The text is woven into the landscape, embracing poetry, dance, and music in the paintings.
