I am a Tahoe City based landscape and still life painter. I enjoy capturing simple beauty found in nature, sharing my paintings with others, and creating art that I would like to display in my own home. As an occupational therapist, I value this time to be creative and participate in meaningful activity. In doing so, I hope to create paintings that evoke fond memories of places and special items.
I returned to painting in the fall of 2021 after about an 11 year hiatus. I was preoccupied with building my career, relationship/family, and enjoying outdoor activities. It has been such a joy to re-introduce myself to painting as a form of self-care, and to further grow my skills with a different level of maturity.
