Since its inception in the late 1880's as a sketch club it has been in continuous operation. In 1924, then known as the Society of Women Artists, it evolved into today's San Francisco Women Artists.

June through July, 2008.
One Woman Exhibit of 17 Oil Paintings on Canvas and 6 Watercolors on Paper. Most of the 23 paintings in this exhibition represent a body of work completed over a period of about 5 years. The newest pieces have all been painted on location in Costa Rica and express my concerns in a vivid and yet realistic manner. They are filled with the PURA VIDA (pure life) of this tropical paradise which surrounds me as I sit on my porch, translating this awesome beauty onto a flat surface. The viewer will easily be transported to the embrace of the tropical rain forest.

Also included are a few pieces completed for my master’s degree exhibit. I included these works to show how my work has progressed over the years, and to show a certain contrast in style. The earlier works were painted from photographs taken at various locations, and were painted back in California. Although beautiful in their own right, they express less vibrancy than those newer pieces painted on location.
