Biography

Growing up in the shadow of the Cascades, the beauty of the Pacific Northwest inspired my love of nature and wildlife. Trips to the mountains have supplied a stunning and endless backdrop for my wildlife subjects which I have been painting for over 40 years.

I attended the Art Institute of Seattle where I graduated with honors with a degree in Visual Communications. I went on to produce art for magazines, newspapers and television, but my background in the fine arts and my desire to paint animals called me back to doing what I have always loved.

 My style is colorful and visually fun to look at. The colors flow and dance across the picture to bring the image alive to tease and invite the viewer to join in the fun.


My work has been seen in galleries from Seattle to New York. My wildlife art designs have sold on shirts and tote bags in Alaska, and many of the lower 48 states.
