    πŸ•’ Most orders are shipped within 2 business days, except for newly completed oils, which may need more time to dry. 

    🎁 When you purchase one of my paintings for $300 or more, you may choose a second painting from the Special Offer Collection for half price with no charge for shipping. Just contact me when you have made your initial purchase to let me know which additional painting you would like. (Not available with additional discounts.)

    For me painting is color poetry. We say something "speaks to" us when we are drawn into it. Mysterious and delightful, this sensing, feeling something from the colors, shapes and gestures is the painting's language, its conversation with us. 

    Each painting is for me unknown before I begin. If I think I know how it will go, I am invariably mistaken as the poem, or fragment of a poem, is excavated. The scratchings, the smoothings, the gestures, the scribbles bit by bit reveal something new. That is the fun part. The discovery, the unearthing ... an interesting word that, for something uncovered, brought to light outside the earth.

    I graduated from St. Andrews University where I received a distinction in philosophy. I lived in Scotland and Germany, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Russia, graduated in textile design from FIT, New York and, spent several years studying painting at The Art Student's League in New York before settling in Oregon, USA.

    My work has been exhibited on the east and west coast of the U.S. My last solo show was Critic's Choice in Portland, Oregon.  I was the winner of the Liquitex International competition cosponsored by ArtFinder, with the triptych The Wonder Of Days II chosen from entries by artists and galleries in 37 countries.

    ​My paintings are held in collections worldwide, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Croatia, Poland, France, Germany, Spain, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong.
