and delighted by the beauty of landscape, I try to express the awe and
wonder I feel through a variety of media on paper.

textures of the landscape, and with the rhythms and patterns of the shapes
wish to evoke in the viewer some of the pleasure, peace and joy I feel
when experiencing and
contemplating our natural world in the form of the landscape. "

vistas of Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and
desert scenes of Anza Borrego. Look for new imagery from her
recent trip to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.
