“I consider my paint as a sculptor might her clay. Each brush stroke takes on a form of its own and, in the end, creates textures that explore and express an object or scene. What I’m tapping into is a dynamic experience of weaving an image together, of building it.”

Recognized for her strong architectural portraits of Rural America, she has been featured in SantaFean, Southwest Art and Western Art Collector.  A fifth generation Coloradan, her subjects fall into diverse camps. First, the West that she grew up around: an iconic landscape of barns, fields and criss-crossing power lines. Second, the West that grew up around Route 66.
