Into The Woods

One of my favorite pass times in the late fall is hiking in the woods.  The deciduous forests are so haunting at this time of year. The trees are becoming bare the undergrowth still peeks through in shades of red and orange and a dusting of snow is settling.  A time to take a crisp … Continue reading Into The Woods

Monsoon Wash

Living in the Dessert Southwest, Arizona to be exact, we wait in anticipation for the Monsoon season to begin in June.  The land is parched by the dry desert winds of May and is crying for the rains to come and bring life back to the arid environment.  Then it happens and the washes begin … Continue reading Monsoon Wash


“Rebirth” can be seen in many forms; healing after an illness, the discovery of a new talent, springtime… My rebirth came after cancer when the Jonquils bloomed and I did too. “Jonquils” was painted as a YouTube video, I loved how it turned out. “Jonquils” 30″ X 30″ Acrylic on 1 1/2″ Gallery Wrap Canvas, … Continue reading Jonquils

Blue Bayou

Many times the inspiration for my paintings comes from an adventure I have read about and in my mind’s eye I have conjured up a feeling or mood.  This is how “Blue Bayou” came about.  I was experimenting with a palette of different shades of blue when a vision started to emerge. It was a … Continue reading Blue Bayou

Across The Pond

I grew up on a lake in Michigan and have always been partial to water as a nurturing substance, not just to feed your thirst but to feed your soul.  Through out my life I have always managed to live near water, even if it has been a man-made waterfall or creek built onto my … Continue reading Across The Pond

Reflecting Home

I call my self a water baby, I grew up on a lake in Southeastern Michigan.  Many of the images I paint reflect the movement of water.  This is one of my more abstract renditions of a sunset reflecting off the water.  It brings back memories of laying on my bed, gazing out the window … Continue reading Reflecting Home


One of my favorite places to vacation is the Central Coast of California.  I use to live there before making my home in Arizona.  I enjoy traveling up the coast to Moro Bay where I love visiting the estuary that forms where the bay meets the land.  It is one of the most dynamic places … Continue reading Estuary

Deep Under

The murkiness of life can sometimes feel as if we are drowning.  What if we dove to find our inner peace?  Instead of drowning we would be floating in love.  For those scuba divers out there this has more than one meaning.  The pleasure of exploring another world. “Deep Under” 30″ X 30″. Acrylic on … Continue reading Deep Under

Finding The Path

February 2015 I traveled to North Carolina to a life changing retreat with an amazing artist and transitioned toward a new life path.  I traveled from darkness to light, as I opened my eyes to see the marvelous me.  I painted this at the time. Where has your path taken you? “Finding The Path”,  30″ … Continue reading Finding The Path

Follow The Moon

Sometimes I fall into a dream, magical and mystical.  Looking for fairies, or un-meet needs  My heart drifts to those lost moments and I see it is good for if I had found what I was missing I would not be a seeker. “Follow The Moon”  24″ X 24″. Acrylic on 1 1/2″ Gallery Wrap … Continue reading Follow The Moon

Winter Moon

The heat of the summer sun finds me resting on the deck with an ice-cold tea pressed against my cheek; suddenly I am transported to a frosty place.  I find the winter moon and must paint the experience.   Yes, sometimes my inspiration comes like this. “Winter Moon”  24″ X 24″.  Acrylic on 1 1/2″ Gallery … Continue reading Winter Moon


Living in Arizona I have grown to love the distant call of the mesa, a land-form you only find in the Southwest.  I imagine seeing a lone stallion standing atop scouting his herd; the sun playing tricks on the landscape, illusions of water where none exists. I know it is a special place. “Sky Mesas” … Continue reading SKY MESAS


Spring is a time for renewal, a positive spring forward away from the dormant winter into a bright new future.  The colors are crisp and clean and ready to jump off the spectrum.  Spring is the perfect time for reinventing yourself or starting new projects.  This is a great example of my Positive-Energy paintings.  It … Continue reading SPRING SET


I use to live on the Central Coast of California over looking the San Luis Bay.  There the cliffs hung ripe with succulent blooms. The sea breezes beckoned you to stay as the surf whispered your every thought. Once a year I go back to quench my thirst for the ocean. I dream of the … Continue reading OCEAN DREAMS


Sometimes a painting becomes very magical as this one did.  No matter how hard I tried to make it into something else, it kept coming back to this misty atmospheric dream state.  The water gently taking my inner most dreams and floating them into the open for all to see. “Dreamy Lagoon”  24″ X 24″.  … Continue reading DREAMY LAGOON


This painting took many turns before it told me what it needed.  In the Spring I try to make a trip back to the Central Coast to get my ocean fix. I usually stop in Moro Bay to visit the estuary, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.  This year I can’t go … Continue reading CRANE CROSSING


I love ponds, or anything that relates to water. It stills my soul and provides me a form of meditation. I grew up on a lake and remember many hours spent watching the sparkle of the sun’s reflection on the waves. It always lulled me into reflection and feelings of solitude. There was a patch … Continue reading CATTAILS


I love when the monsoons finally start up. After months of wind and heat the forests become tinder crisp and ready for fire; so it is wonderful when the monsoons storms come barreling in.  We had a huge gully washer the other day which brought much-needed rain, and inspiration to my pallet.  We have beautiful … Continue reading MONSOON LAKE


In the mountains of Arizona the monsoons have been abundant this summer. The rivers are swollen and the wildflowers are everywhere in our forests. The monsoons also bring wonderful cloud formations and present stunning sunrises and sunsets. A friend of mine captured a sunrise while she was enjoying her morning coffee. I was so inspired … Continue reading PRESCOTT SUNRISE


I love rivers; they bring back wonderful memories from fishing with my dad to tubing with my kids. Rivers sustain life in places where little else can, providing relief from thirst and byways for travelers. A rover can be a very magical place. River’s Bend,  a 20″ X 20″ Acrylic on 1 1/2″ Gallery Wrap … Continue reading RIVERS BEND
