I am stimulated by images in nature and the environment. It is a source of energy and ideas. I believe art is a personal language continually growing and developing. My paintings are a celebration of life. Different mediums have been pursued. Watercolor is my favorite choice for its spontaneity and mysterious qualities - oil for its range and depth - acrylic for quick drying and flat layering - monotype for experimental freedom. Art has been my balance in life, passion, inspiration, work and healing. Collections include the Weisman Art Museum, Minnesota HIstory Society, Minnesota Museum of American Art, Augsburg-St. Catherine-Luther-ConcordiaU-St. Olaf-Gustavus Adolphus, Bethel as well as numerous private and corporate collections.
