The paintings are an expression of happiness inspired by the beautiful Pacific Northwest...

I hope to kindle the viewer's imagination and sense of adventure by creating a world of vibrant colors and rich textures with brush and palette knife.

About me
I live in Lynden, WA with my husband and our two children. When I'm not painting, I love to hike, camp, snowshoe, ski and explore the local lakes, trails and beaches with my family. It is from these experiences that I draw inspiration for many of my paintings. I am in constant awe of the PNW and the beauty found here.  Want to stay in touch? Follow me on Instagram or like my page on Facebook.

Training and background
I am a formally trained artist with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Northern Illinois University (1998), where I studied painting and illustration. For the past 16 years I have also worked as a graphic designer both in-house and as a freelance designer. 

New work
I'm currently exploring new landscapes in Whatcom County and creating vibrant acrylic pieces on canvas.  I'm also working with watercolor and pen and ink to create smaller pieces which are equally colorful and whimsical. The framed watercolor paintings are available for purchase in my new Etsy Shop, Jansen Art Center in Lynden, WA and Scandi Butik & Gifts in Fairhaven, WA. 

Thank you for visiting my work online!
