Painting is a wonderful escape for me particularly during this challenging time of separation and sadness. I find solace in the natural world around me including animals and birds. I appreciate how their lives go on with little regard for the worries of humans. Somehow I find this reassuring. I hope you enjoy my work.

My childhood home was decorated with oil paintings by my Danish grandfather. I remember being in awe of how he captured the lovely landscapes of the country and I secretly aspired to his talent. As I was growing up, I spent a lot of time sketching and using water colors. My had my first experience with oils in middle school and I loved the feel of them. I remember being seriously envious of a fellow student in high school who painted in oils but I was focused on academics. College, travel, work and family happened and I didn't pick up painting again until semi-retirement. I was fortunate to take classes from Chester Arnold, Craig Coss and others. . With the encouragement of my family, I have continued to explore painting. I have a deep love and respect for animals and the natural world and have lately been focusing my attention here. Having Marin MOCA available to me is wonderful. I find the artists to be very generous with guidance and support.
