Currently, working in oil and watercolor, several series of work have emerged; a series on highly interpretive urban landscapes, an abstract series inspired by antique circus chairs and large botanicals of flowers grown in her garden. Country landscapes are always in the mix, done as commissions or just because she finds a particularly great scene she can't resist.
