Pursuing a career of landscape painting she exhibited her work in various museums and competitions winning awards and having work entered into Museum collections. As her interest in art deepened she began to explore different mediums as communication tools, working in glass, enameling and jewelry making. Much of her art began are single pieces that are part of a series that explore a larger perception of the topic. Often using metaphor in her work, the pieces are work that can be viewed as literal and metaphoric work.
In the Language of Orchids
A study of a beautiful white Cattleya Orchid, from root to leaf and flower. The chop on the side is composed of the varying elements of the orchid plant, describing it and illuminating it.
A soft gray-green background shows off the drama of the flowering plant in a color that is calming to live with and the 'chop' further adds a graphic element to the painting.

Acrylic on board, this painting is a fine image of the Atlantic Ocean off of the Carolina coat.
A stiff breeze and a storm moving inland work together to create a striking image of the sea.
Giclee -Rio Grande River
This image was found on a beautiful piece of the Rio Grande as it makes its way through the Embudo stretch of the river, a little south of Taos. It was fall, and the leaves were gone from the trees but the gold of Chamisa and the red of the willows made a stunning contrast with the water, still warm from the passing summer. Printed on Archival Matt Paper, 18" x 18".
Climbing to the Heights, Embudo Canyon
The location of this Oil on Canvas is on the mountain side of the breathtaking cliffs that follow the Rio Grande through Embudo Canyon. A winding and scenic road it is a drive to relish. The snow was sticking to the brush and parts of the mountain on a wintry day in January. The red of the willows is always an amazing color especially in the winter months when so much is more drab in color. A jet was cutting its way through the blue sky on its way west.
