Exploring the color and freshness watercolor makes possible, I create realistic paintings inspired by the unique, colorful landscapes of the southwest.  I began working in watercolor in 2007.  My award-winning paintings have been juried into local shows in Tucson, as well as into the Western Federation of Watercolor Guild’s 35th Annual Exhibition in 2010.

I am a signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild.  A long-time resident of Tucson, I earned a BFA from the University of Arizona, where I focused on drawing and printmaking.  I also studied at the Dayton Art Institute and the Maryland Institute of Art.  Now winding down from a career in engineering graphics, I enjoy painting regularly with a group of watercolor artists.
