Seattle native. Los Angeles for too long. Self-taught, bring crazy-good color, texture, movement to my art. I paint like I cook — with passion, some precision and an eye toward visual excitement. Straight lines don’t interest me. Taught ceramics, fiber arts, sculpture and collage at Braille Institute in LA for years — wonderful experience bringing art into the world of blind and partially-sighted adults. In private collections in Bethesda, Beverly Hills, Boise, LA, NYC, Oakland, Portland and Seattle.
