Map & Directions



I am a Minnesota-based painter working primarily in acrylics and watercolors. Growing up in the idyllic landscape of the Driftless area in Southwestern Wisconsin, and my Mother’s passion for gardening, instilled a deep appreciation of and reverence for Nature.

Creative influences include the detailed works of Albrecht Dürer and the macro views of flowers found in Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings. My own extensive gardens and travels around the world provide inspiration for my work. Taking time to slow down and pay attention to the details reminds me just how small we are – and how much beauty we often overlook or take for granted!

The animals, landscapes, and flora I paint represent my relationships to Nature. They are thoughtful and deeply personal. My work encourages and provides the Viewer an opportunity to look more closely as they navigate through each day, and allows them to create a positive awareness of- and relationship to-
the Natural world we live in.


While I am NOT set up to sell through this Marketplace, my art IS certainly AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE through my website, or by calling me directly.
