       The subject of my work is as much the act of painting outdoors as it is the landscape depicted. Painting on a big canvas, entirely outdoors and immersed in the elements, feels like the X-sport of landscape painting. I only paint outside and enjoy the adventure of dragging huge canvases into the landscape and working through changing light, wind, and the occasional rattlesnake. The paintings are completed over many sessions; I mark the spot where I stand exactly and return at the same time every day to record the beauty of a specific place.

       I have been painting the Wyoming landscape since 1993, and live in the shadow of the Bighorn Mountains with my husband, Aaron, and our two children. I studied art at Yale University (BA--'87), and the American University (MFA--'92). During the 1990’s, I pursued teaching art as well, and was faculty at The Taft School in addition to having taught at the Smithsonian Institution and the Connecticut Community College system. My paintings can be viewed frequently at the The Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper WY, The Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings MT, or Bradford Brinton Museum in Bighorn WY. My work is in private collections across the U.S. and has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine.
