About the Artist
Hello, and thanks for reading a little about me.
I am a lifetime resident of historic Snohomish, Washington in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I'm very fortunate to live in such a great community that supports me along my journey of creating art.
I continue to explore lots of mediums but painting is my one true love. I paint in acrylics on both canvas and wood. My work ranges from oversized to miniature. I've no formal training but over the past 8-years have developed my own bold painting style and techniques.
As for my personal life, I live in a 119-year old farmhouse (a moonshine house during prohibition) near historic downtown Snohomish, Washington. It's myself, my husband of 18-years, Ted, our 9-year old rescue dog, Scooter & a small flock of chickens. I also have a wonderful stepson who I am very proud of, Nathan, 24.
Besides creating, in my spare time I enjoy gardening, traveling, live music, animals of every kind, friends and nature.
I'm an advocate of suicide awareness and have participated in fundraising for the Out of the Darkness walks. I volunteered at Everett's Gospel Mission from 2014 -2016 and truly enjoyed the humbling experience. The Mission remains one of my favorite charitable organizations.
Currently my husband and I are active with Washington's Adopt-A-Highway program. We have adopted two stretches in my hometown of Snohomish, WA through the year 2021. You can see signs along this stretch of road dedicated to the memory of my brother, Corey Whitney.
Creating art brings me great joy, and I hope that joy carries on to you, through it.
Thank you for supporting the arts and local Pacific Northwest artists - especially during the Coronavirus!
