Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Cheryl Dolby did a great job covering the Ope Studio Tours this past weekend! I got to get a feel of what the other artists had going on! I hate I could not go visit myself.

Cheryl, thanks for posting this and I really enjoyed meeting everyone! There were so many new folks that visited this was refreshing!

A special thanks to Mary Bullington for letting me show at her home.

The Doorway

Here is my last new work for the week. It is called, 'The Doorway'. This piece is another Citra Solv collage. What a fun and interesting way to create unpredictable textures, patterns, and images.

The reason this is the last piece of the week, is because Saturday is Open Studios Tour. This will be our 10th anniversary (my 7th). Please follow the link to check out all the wonderful artists that will be part of this tour. Please come out, check out the art, and visit awhile. It' s free!

Hope to see you soon, I am off to frame.
