Art is my passion, its creation my journey. I began, as most, with crayon or pencil in hand. Developing, honing those skills as my childhood years passed. I enrolled at what was then Boise State Collage as a Liberal Arts Major. The reality of becoming a starving artist surfaced, thus I went to work in the corporate world. There, as management in the computer semiconductor industry, I met and married my husband, and began raising our family. Years passed with little time for self expression as an artist. The early nineties found me wanting this reawakened my pursuit of art. I am now a full time artist and art instructor with Linn-Benton Community College, among other locations around the state. This gives me the distinct pleasure of sharing the journey with fellow artists and friends.
I am honored to be a member in the Corvallis Art Guild, Vistas and Vineyards Artist Group, Colored Pencil Society of America, and awarded Linn-Benton Community College Outstanding Part Time Faculty Member for 2008.
