I have been painting in acrylic and oil for more years than I wish to reveal, but over 20 years teaching art in the public schools of Finley and Burbank, WA. My inspiration comes from local scenery and moments of time stored in my memory. My husband is a wildlife photographer and captures on film great subjects and detail to incorporate into my work.....all provided by our Heavenly Father God. My paintings are all original, not reproductions of any kind. I received a BA in Art Education from Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA in 1971. We reside now in Kennewick, WA on 2 acres with one cat, a family of pheasants, quail and the occasional visit from a neighbor's peacocks, which you'll see in some of my paintings.
