Her works have been described as evocative landscapes fused with a sense of life, which, at times approach the spiritual and surreal. In ARTnews in 1990, Nancy Grimes wrote “ Her landscapes become intimate theaters in which the spectator succumbs to a mood of quiet reverence in the presence of something larger than himself.”

Much of my imagery searches for the quiet places. I paint the particulars of a moment, an overview of a peaceful landscape, or a memory rediscovered. I always aim for "a box of air”, to quote my dear Professor Lennart Anderson. So that my paintings become a space of atmosphere and light. It is my hope that my paintings serve as a retreat for the viewer to indulge in. Despite the happenings in the world we live in that there is still peace and beauty in paint that warms the soul. That it is possible for art to be a place that centers us. I will paint my paintings and put that positive energy out there."
