I paint in watercolor, oil and other media. My paintings are of landscapes and vegetables, sometimes in combination.
Throughout my life, I have sought mixes of art and the natural world. At Antioch College, I studied art, biology and geology. While pursuing an MS in entomology, I illustrated scientific manuscripts, and co-produced a video on Insects in the Arts. During and following my Ph.D. in environmental toxicology, my creative efforts focused on fiber arts: sweaters, rugs and table linens.
I began painting in 1997, first in watercolors, and then in oils starting in 2009. I often bring marbling, printing, mosaic and collage techniques into my work. I started showing in 1999, and had my first solo show in 2001.
