"The way to avoid housework is to live outside." -Sandra Blacksmith 1900
The landscape of central Oregon provides for plenty of outdoor pursuits and is the backdrop for my family and artistic life. I paint cowgirl dreams beacuse I feel most like myself when I am riding, and almost as much when I am painting. I would live in a barn if I could get away with it. In this spirit I am compelled to create images of the life I live, or dream to live.
