FROM the ARTIST:
Although best known for the iconic “wild tasteful women” I also paint impressionistic and design western artwork. With a degree in fine art/sculpture and some post-grad work in sculpture, my art is diverse with a distinctive style and energy. I like to weave bold colors, strokes, and colors to result in unique and spirited images.
The “women” art is created to empower and celebrate women, who instinctively get the metaphors. I want to include not only the diversity of color, size, and ethnicity of women, but also the saucy sexuality that is part of us. That’s how we’re made and any culture reflects that the gathering of women is soul-enhancing and joyful. I want to capture this spirit!
I have been fortunate enough to have a long career with my women gracing wine labels, magazine covers, licensed products, homes, and restaurants. I’ve worked as an art docent and taught accredited classes in drawing while living in Olympia, and had a gallery in both downtown Bend and Sisters. Now I’m settling in Sisters and picking up my life after the recent death of my husband. He was my partner and I know would be happy that I’m picking up, painting, and moving forward. I’m very blessed!
