I am fascinated by layers and textures. Whether it is collage or assemblage each piece starts with a layer of paint and successive layers are added until I achieve a look I am satisfied with.  Starting with a general idea it is fun to follow the journey of the piece from beginning to end.  It always amazes me.  


I am largely a self-taught artist that experimented with many mediums before finding my happy place with torn paper collage and assemblage. In 2018 I left the workforce to focus on art full time and have had no regrets. My work has been shown at the Schack Art Center“ Art of the Garden” show and  published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors “Pages” and Somerset Studios “Apprentice” magazines.  


I live in Washington State with my husband Ted and Bichon Jack.
