One of the pieces in my series "Deconstructed Landscape VI".
I enjoy painting the natural world, but also enjoy abstracting what I see. By 'deconstructing' natural shapes, colors, and textures, I can arrange a collage or encaustic to become a painting perhaps without order, but with a sense of abstract composition.
- Besides yearly shows, I am represented by Ryan Gallery in Lincoln City. I am a showing artist in Lake Area Artists and Painters Showcase and LOCAL 14.
Coming up soon

Earlier in 2016 I had a very bad accident. I broke 3 bones in my ankle and one in the shoulder. Lots of ligament damage/tears. ugh.... It has been a long recovery! So when I realized I couldn't get up to my studio for quite awhile, I decided to take some wire and beads I had already made and create some fun pieces of jewelry. Here are a few of the rings I made of copper and silver. To make sure they would last, I treated the copper with a cleaner and resin to coat it so it wouldn't tarnish. The silver is just that- if it touches your skin, I've made sure it won't tarnish. So earrings and rings- something a bit new.
