Artist’s Statement: Growing up on three continents, I have been inspired by much of the world. I now live on 30 breath-taking acres in an old historic hunting lodge, capturing the beauty that surround me. My home studio is a destination in itself amidst the wine country of Oregon, with 360 degree views of rolling farm land, Mt Hood and surrounding vineyards.Educated in Apparel & Textile Design, I was L.L. Bean’s first apparel designer in the 80’s, Nike’s first Apparel Innovation Director in the 90’s, and launched during the dot-com boom. I now teach pastel workshops, amd I am represented by 6 galleries along the west coast. I am a board member and an award winner of the NW Pastel Society and am published nationally.
