Alice Neel said “You should keep painting no matter how difficult the experience, because this is all part of the experience, and the more experience you have, the better it is…. unless it kills you, then you know you have gone too far.”  I’ve kept painting, no matter how difficult it was, and it hasn’t killed me yet, and I’m 71.  I’m encouraged, and I’m not stopping!

This work is a collection of traveling art, by that I mean, this is what I do on vacation. Our last trip was during the cold, rainy season here in Skagit County, to the magical island of Maui. In this show, you'll see some of what we experienced, including sunny warm weather.

Key West, FL was another important trip we made. Such a lively, colorful place, rich in history (think Hemingway) and a lighthouse in the southernmost point of the US.

I've included watercolor castles in Portugal, pen and ink with colored pencil art from Mazatlan and Santa Fe, too.

I have MS degrees in education and recreation therapy, but art and the outdoors are my passions. I have always enjoyed art and have dabbled in various media over the years:  drawing, colored pencils, watercolor, pottery, sumi-e and most recently, collage.
