Her most recent accolade is the IAPS Master Circle Gold Medal, which she will receive at the IAPS convention in Albuquerque in June 2017.

" I wish to share the outdoor experience that I have had with nature and my interpretation as an artist with a representational impressionist point of view. I am painting the experience, not a reproduction to the view. I want to have the viewer want to step into the painting, look around the corner, look up at the aspens, feel the temperature of the day, sense a feeling of the time, hear the sounds of leaves and the thunder of a distant storm.Through color harmony, pastel pigment, texture and edges and with a strong concept, good design and composition, I convey this to the viewer and evoke some memories or desires. When viewers say, "I know where that is," or I feel like I want to walk in there with the aspens, or "I wish I was there" that is a successful panting to me."
