About Me

My training in film and theater directing taught me to amplify mood and emotion.   My curiosity about people and their lives sent me on a journey to visit other cultures - both past and present to learn from their beliefs and lifestyle. This is the environment that I developed my painting skills in. 
The color and images within the shrines in Nepal were jaw dropping. Designed to communicate to people who spoke 550 separate languages,  color and design transcended language. It was rich. I paid close attention to learn this ancient language.  I also worked a tour guide for an archaeology site where an entire village was frozen in time - a literal snapshot of their lives. Wooden carvings and hand woven baskets made of cedar bark were preserved in an epic mud slide, making it possible to experience their designs carved 800 years before. The pieces were vibrant and expressive - as if time stood still. 
I didn't follow a prescribed method of learning to paint. It was more a process of discovery as I found my painting path.  I focused on how art positively impacts people and communities. I watched one community rebuild their identity through art. I watched creative people make a difference in other people's lives. 


Welcome to my Painted Fictional World. Here you will find locations like the Water Lands and the Crystalline Forest.   Please join the journey to read the stories and discover more characters in this land. A few of the stories are accessible on the blog. More content is on its way to this site.

I insist each painting stands on its own, I am motivated by the creation of a literary and painted world. Currently my goal is to combine short theatrical enabling the audience to experience segments of the story while being surrounded by the paintings.  

Some pieces on the site are from my Northwest series of paintings, including many of the landscapes you see here.
