I like negative spaces better than the object, and through my work I continue to explore the spaces in between. I don't know how this fascination started, but sometimes I muse that it must come from growing up in Nebraska - from being born in a town that sits on a highway that runs through the center of the country. After earning a BFA from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln and an MFA from Michigan State University I taught art history, studio art, and integrative studies at Lower Columbia College in Longview, Washington from 1979-2008. I have shown my work regionally, nationally, and until recently I was represented by Blackfish Gallery in Portland, Oregon. In retirement I continue working in my studio, exhibiting, traveling, travel writing, and performing with TAPestry NW. My husband and I paddle, row, and cruise on the Columbia River and Puget Sound in the boats he builds.

Awards: Nebraska Residency Award

Born in Nebraska in 1977, I grew up drawing and painting the figure models from my mother's pattern books at her fabric store. After leaving my hometown of Newman Grove, I studied painting and sculpture at the University of Nebraska Kearney. I pursued my interest in the human figure through life drawing and the sculpting of human bones. Desiring a classical education in art, I attended the Graduate School of Figurative Painting, also known as the New York Academy of Art. Here I studied human anatomy, linear perspective, and classical techniques in painting, drawing, and sculpture, while immersed in the contemporary discourse of the NYC art scene. I proceeded to work as a painter's assistant, illustrator, and muralist before deciding to return to my home state. I currently paint, draw, and sculpt all kinds of subject matter -including the figure- out of my home/studio in Omaha, NE, and teach at the college level.
