I draw with pen and ink, silverpoint, and pencil. I have integrated these drawings as painted textile images into my work, showcasing Idaho and reflecting the passing of time in Nature. 

I view the transitions between the seasons as metaphors for our own lives. Nature's most beautiful moments are in constant flux. The muted colors of late Autumn are lovely and rich. The very last faded blooms of summer flowers are gentle and tender. Even the mud season, after the white snow has melted, is full of promise.

My award-winning work has been juried into numerous national and international exhibitions, is in private collections, has been part of the “Art in Embassies” program, and has been featured in several publications.

My piece “Four Seasons at the Beaver Pond” (part of my series on Idaho’s Grandeur) is touring in Quilt National 2013.
