Denise’s pieces reflect the natural beauty of the Santiam Canyon were she and her husband live on the confluence of The North Santiam River, and the Little North Santiam. Both of them have lived in the Willamette Valley most of their lives, enthusiastically enjoying the outdoors.
Denise has worked as a watercolorist for J. Stone Cards, and also, as a graphic designer for Chemeketa Community College. Most of her work has been done in a studio with oils or acrylics on larger canvases. Recently, she has discovered the excitement of painting on location outdoors.
