Artist's Statement



Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought. 

 ~Albert non Szent-Gyorgyi


~ Nature & the beauty of life inspire the paintings I create for your home.

~ The transformation from vision to art brings the subject matter to life on canvas or paper.

~ I tell the story of beauty, both epic and intimate, that brings peace and restoration to your space.

~ Your feelings about scenes you love find a voice you might not otherwise have - of joyful memories, inspiration, hope, peace, and wonder.

“As an artist, I only flirt with my subject matter, I don’t marry it."

~ Jan thoreen lewis

About the Artist

Let me be Your guide to a beautiful, inspiring home . . .

We all desire to revisit the glorious moments in nature and life that take our breath away, and that's why I paint.  I love to capture powerful, moving, memorable moments and bring them into your home for you to experience and enjoy every day.

Statement pieces for Your walls . . .

Art is like magic - emotions can be created out of pigment and brushes, and what was previously felt but unseen becomes visible.  

My award-winning art has been collected by art-lovers throughout the United States.  Whether through a commission or a piece that you find here in my online gallery, you can fill a unique space in your home or office with one of my paintings.  Step in and look around – the magic is waiting for you!

How my journey to being Your art guide began . . .

As a 22 year-old graphic design student at Long Beach State University, I experienced my first taste of the unique medium of watercolor.  The mesmerizing interaction between water, pigment, and paper utterly captivated my senses and eventually became my primary way of sharing my love of nature and beauty.  I added oils to my art repertoire in 2018, which greatly expanded my creative joy.

I grew up in Pasadena, California, moving to Colorado in my early 20's.  I lived, married, and raised my family in the small mountain town of Buena Vista and moved to Cortez, Colorado in 2019.

And how You & I can connect today . . .

Today I find delight painting in my light-filled studio in the very heart of my home.  With you in mind, I portray the drama of Mesa Verde, Arches, and Canyonlands National Parks; the bold skies and lush ranchlands of SW Colorado; as well as the beauty and fun of flowers, animals, people, and delightful moments in life.
