About Me


My Background

I started  drawing as soon I could hold a pencil.  Studied Art and nursing at Citrus College in Azusa, CA.  Opened my own gallery, Avalon Arts, in White Bear Lake in 1991.  Moved to Arizona, and fell in love with the light and color!   I am represented exclusively by Rogoway Turquoise Tortoise Gallery in Tubac, AZ


My Medium

I use many different mediums.  With a backround in watercolor and author of "Watercolor for the Fun of It, Painting People" published by North Light Books.  I illustrated 10 Children's Books. After moving to AZ, I started doing collage, to paint the colors here and frame without glass


My Inspiration

These are some of the handmade papers that inspire me.  I make some of my own papers, and purchase some.  Horses, people and animals are my favorite subjects.  Horses are so strong, free and graceful .  they really intrigue me  as I try to show their movement and soul.
