Who Goes There

On a recent private visit to an Alpaca farm in Washington State the owner allowed me to enter the enclosure with the Alpacas to take photos.
The animals gathered around me, curious and yet a bit nervous. Two of them stood slightly apart from the others, staring at me as if to say “Who are you, and what do you want?” One of them folded back her ears and the other stuck hers straight up, and that is the picture I tried to capture.

  • About Me

    As an artist in oils and mixed media, I draw my inspiration from books I have read, from music and legends, and from my experiences living and traveling in many different countries such as Europe, Scandinavia, the Far East and here in America. Most of my work is from my imagination and also sometimes from memories of people and landscapes which touched me in some way. I try to experiment with different media to reflect the excitement of movement and color in my pieces. Ideas often come to me in the middle of the night, or while sitting quietly in my studio, or reading. The pieces that seem to interest the viewer are almost always the ones I feel most passionate about myself. Making art is a wonderful way of sharing.
