This past weekend I was honored to support Sitka Center for Art and Ecology by participating in their annual art fundraiser extravaganza. I had the pleasure of teaching there several years ago as well as take a summer workshop – it is a magical place. Nestled in a cove, just south of Neskowin on the Oregon coast, classrooms open onto meadow views with the ocean surf just audible in the background. A truly inspiring place to make art!

Little Tremors, a piece from my new body of work Earthquake Weather is hanging this month at Waterstone Gallery. During the month of June I’ll be exhibiting 21 new paintings at the gallery. These vibrant acrylic paintings were inspired by a trip I took to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument last fall. I was struck by the rich, natural palette of reds, ochres and blues of this majestic and mysterious landscape.
I’m happy to share that my latest artist’s book, Send A Rescue Ship, sold to the University of Washington, Special Collections, Seattle, WA.
I am pleased to announce that I joined Waterstone Gallery, where I will be exhibiting my paintings. Founded in 1992, Waterstone is an artist-owned organization with 18 members. We show a wide variety contemporary art including paintings, prints, glass work, and sculpture.
