Welcome to my website,

I’m a pastel artist living and working in Apache Junction, Arizona.  My husband and I live on the slopes of the Superstition Mountain, overlooking the Phoenix Area.   Retiring here from the Northwest, we enjoy the room and time to pursue our interests.  

My subject matter is mostly landscapes from our travels, all over the west, with an occasional abstract when the mood strikes me.   Lately, I’ve been painting a lot of  southwest plants and architecture, given I have so much subject matter around me.  Many of the he subjects are taken from my yard, or the view from our house, 

Although I sell my work at art shows and galleries, It seems like much of my work, these days is coming from commissions.

Recently, we completed a 1000SF shop and studio on our property and occasionally, we open that to visitors.

Please browse my work, and by all means leave a comment or drop a note.  I’d enjoy hearing from you.
