Watercolor & Dye on Silk
I am a Colorado native currently residing in Colorado Springs. I have always loved art, but didn't pursue my artistic expression until I retired. Since retirement, I travel and enjoy painting watercolors en plein air with Garden Artists around the Pikes Peak Region and silk in my studio. Dye on silk gives such vibrant colors! The incredible feel of the silk, and my original designs make them popular wearable art as well as fine art paintings.
My love of travel explains the diversity of my painting subjects. Everywhere I go I see beauty and amazing animals, people and landscapes.
I am inspired and awed by how beautiful our world is. I aspire to convey my awe and nature's beauty in my paintings.
I am a signature member of Pikes Peak Watercolor Society (PPWS). My paintings have been juried into International Watermedia Shows in Colorado Springs, Wyoming and New Mexico. My paintings received awards in New Mexico, Mountainside Miniature Show in Golden, CO, and the Zonta Womens Art Show.
I am a member of Silk Painters International (SPIN) and have been juried into their shows and 20th anniversary calendar.
I am a member of Gallery 113, a vibrant cooperative gallery in downtown Colorado Springs.
It really is true that we are all artists. It's wonderful to have the time to explore that
potential while living in such a beautiful place.
