I grew up in Idaho and have loved drawing and painting all my life. I worked in graphic arts as a young adult, in the US and in Canada after I immigrated in 1971. After moving to the Gulf Islands in the early 1980s I started painting more, first in watercolour and later in acrylic. In between I tried my hand at etching and linoprinting and spent ten years doing monotypes. In 1998 I started a small gallery on Saturna Island and operated it for ten years before moving to Victoria. I still have a deep connection to Saturna and spend many weekends and summer months there, but am mainly working in Victoria. I enjoy doing and looking at both representational and non-representational work, but colour is the main language in both.
