The act of painting for me is a way to physically interact and inhabit a landscape.

My paintings evolve from a combination of direct observation and the recollected atmospheric elements of a place. My intention is that this aspect of nostalgia and the evocative forces of color and light will combine in my work to spark a connection between my suggestion of an image and each individual viewer and their own unique experiences. 

My paintings are created in my Portland, Oregon studio, where I live with my husband, two daughters, and two dogs.
