Chair Affair Artist

It seems like I am always telling a story in my work, usually based on a quirky inspiration.
I have been drawing all my life – and delight in finding humor in the ordinary. I lived in Alberta, Canada for many years, where I went to school, received recognition as a printmaker, taught at the Banff Centre for several years and later, owned a gallery showing local artists. I also lived several years in England and Greece, both providing inspiration, and fueling the unique narrative of my work. 

I love opportunities to teach - to bring out that creative side in everyone - to play with new ideas, new tastes, new images. My work experience includes art making, teaching and catering. I live in Gig Harbor and work for REACH ministries, a non-profit serving kids with life-threatening illness. Contact me at:
