She said “Spring in Iceland is spectacular. It’s ribbons of bright colored flowers against a backdrop of cold grey rocks in formations that have been in creation since the beginning of time.” My friend is clearly adroit at putting words to abstract ideas, so what she said painted a mental picture for me. I then painted my interpretation of her interpretation…Iceland Spring, a celebration of the continuity and perpetuity of Nature.
Seattle native. Los Angeles for too long. Self-taught. I paint like I cook — with passion and some precision — valuing the roles that color, texture and movement play in a finished piece. I like harmony with some surprises thrown in. I volunteered at the Braille Institute in LA for years, teaching ceramics, fiber arts and collage to blind and partially sighted adults, an incredibly humbling experience. I’ve enjoyed being in numerous shows/exhibits in Idaho since 2015, and am pleased that my art is in private collections across the United States and that I serve on the Meridian Arts Commission.
