Whimsical watercolors with an emphasis on Pacific Northwest Aquatic Fauna. Born and raised in rural Western Oregon with a love for the ocean, and temperate rain forest. My appreciation for nature increased eventually leading me to earn a zoology degree from Oregon State. Expressing my love for nature through art remained a hobby but 3 years ago while my daughter napped I borrowed her watercolors. That whimsical castle on a hill was the start of a rediscovery of a dream to be an artist, to share and educate about the world around us through paint and paper.
