Out My Window
Blossoms Under Water
Acrylic, denim and collage mixed media on canvas
I had been viewing the mountains from out my window in my Fauntleroy apartment and was sketching the scene as our daylight started waning. I wanted to experiment with realism while still using found objects. I incorporated denim in this piece as mountains and collage pieces as the water I saw.

After relocating from Seattle to NYC where she lived from 2016-2019, she moved back to the Pacific Northwest to recover from a sudden brain cancer diagnosis. She combines her love for traveling and visual storytelling with her desire to spread a message and document the changing environment through art.
“La Vie en Rose” is a nod to her love for French culture and her passion for music. The mixed media pieces in this show depict seeing life through rose-colored glasses, or the experience of finding joy and staying positive despite life’s ups and downs.
