Chair Affair Artist

I am a true Washingtonian with a strong Norwegian heritage that ties me to the sea.  The majority of my life has been spent in, near, or on the waters of the Puget Sound.  My cozy home/studio is on Day Island where living on the water feeds my soul and opens the door to my creative spirit.

As an artist of many media, I delight in capturing light and shadow in photography, painting with the vivid colors and textures of encaustic paint, and creating art of the ordinary.  I have designed and created fashionable walking canes, colorful custom stemware, and thousands of note tablets featuring my own original photography.  These products have been used and enjoyed by many over the years.

Creating a “Chair of Art” has been a unique and wonderful experience.  I am deeply honored to have been included as a contributor in this wonderful fundraiser.
