I am an artist who works in watercolor, ink and acrylic in my studio in Ojai, California.
My art focuses on nature; flowers and plants, birds and insects, which I spend time observing. Sometimes I add fun items such as puzzle pieces, paper clips or marbles to my botanical compositions.
I begin each painting with a pencil drawing to design my composition. Many layers of watercolor are added to achieve the vivid color, and ink details are added.
An avid traveler, I also make paintings of “cottages”; little houses or shops, gates and windows I see on trips or around Ojai.
My work is available at Gallery 113 in Santa Barbara and the Garden Shop at Lotusland in Montecito, via this website or directly through me.
I work in my loft studio accompanied by my two small dogs and serenaded by the birds in my towering oak trees.
