fine art
Thank you for visiting my online gallery.
I live and paint in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. From my home overlooking Beaver Lake I am touched daily by the ever-changing amazement of nature. We get storms here that rock the house and light the night sky like strobes at a rock concert. We get soft snows that blanket and soften the rugged stone outcroppings. And we get falls riddled with as many colors as Joseph's proverbial coat.
As a mixed watermedia landscape artist who loves color, there's hardly a better place for inspiration. But I love the southwest, too, and do a good deal of painting in the Rockies, mainly Colorado, and in New Mexico and Texas.
To capture the light, I use watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein, charcoal and pastel in any and all combinations. I'm always trying different things to be as accurate to my perceptions about nature and the changing light and seasons as possible.
In the following pages check out my Wild Traceries Gallery of paintings. Travels with JJ, my sweet Jack Russell terrier, chronicles trips to some incredible painting destinations.
My original work is available through this website and at Lake Shore Cabins Gallery on Mundell Road on Beaver Lake. Please contact me if you would like more information.

Ozark Book!
Video compliment of Marsha Havens, who ran Eureka Thyme Gallery in Eureka Springs for 10 years before she was forced to close due to health problems. I still love the video - enjoy!
Second Annual Plein Air Festival
First National Bank Opening
The First National Bank of Northwest Arkansas opened in Bentonville this June. The design is modern and light-filled and includes five exterior windows to display local artists' work. I'm among the first four artists and have nine pieces on display through mid-July. It is especially wonderful at night when the paintings are lit.
Work available in two local shops
My work is now available in one of Eureka's most unique shops: The
Treehouse Cottages Gift Shop on Highway 62 across from the Century 21
office.  Terry and Patsy Miller have created a wonderful, woodsy resort
which includes a spacious shop with some one-of-a-kind gifts, many by
local artists.
Also, with one of the best views of Beaver Lake anywhere, Lake Shore Cabins Gallery, store and office hosts my work. Located on Mundell Road off of Hwy. 187 near the dam, Donna and David Braswell take a lot of pride in their amazing resort.
Both shops carry some originals, prints, framed prints and books.

This year's White Street Walk, always the third Friday in May, was wonderful in spite of the stormy weather. Thanks to all of you who participated, enjoyed and purchased art. It makes all the work and time devoted to making art when all of you show up to enjoy it.
This year, my work went to people from Chicago, Tulsa, Dallas and Little Rock, including several local Eurekans.
Thanks also to Peggy and Roger Kjelgaard who open the doors to their lovely nightly rental at 10 White Street. They work tirelessly to support the arts and artists!
Make plans to be there next year. It's one of the most fun nights of the year in Eureka Springs.

2017 White Street Walk
This wonderful addition to Eureka Springs' art month included participants from across the country. About 40 artists set up easels and painted all around town, and much of the work produced was amazing. I think this is one of the most exciting new events Eureka has to offer, and I have high hopes it will grow into a premier festival over the coming years.
My piece, Forest Patterns, took second place overall, and another piece, Not-So-Blue Springs, received a $1,000 purchase prize.
