When not teaching, she is painting or printmaking in her second story studio out on Point No Point in Hansville, with an expansive view on Puget Sound towards Whidbey Island. Birds and other critters make it into her compositions frequently, but so do humans, sometimes as portraits, sometimes as outlines. The Gallery is located at 181 Winslow Way East, Suite F.
