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.

Sunsets, and Snow Days

Snow days are grand for time in the studio. 
Since it snowed all night last night, so 
I took the advantage to work all night long!

Winter Trees Encaustic

     Yesterday was Groundhog Day...and as we all know by now, the groundhog saw his shadow. Looks like we are in for six more week of winter according to ol' Puxatawny Phil! Now mind you, if the next six weeks are like the last six, bring it on. This winter has been mild, to say the last. While I hoped for snow, so far, there has not been any.

     Today, however, I was off for a 'snow day', a built in snow day. A creating day! Yes, a three day weekend to create! I had been hoping, for some time now, to work on a new body of work; I am now in the sketching stages for creating larger pieces of work.

     Also, I will soon be offering customizable art classes for individuals or small groups of children or adults. Private lessons are great way to develop artistic skills and foster creativity while having fun. I will tailor the classes to fit your abilities and interests. These classes can cover the most basic level skills of various art-making practices to advanced techniques. Some of the topics will include:

-Topics to choose from include, but not limited to:

• Printmaking (ex. Monotype, block printing, etc.)
• Collage (canvas, paper, altered jewelry, soldered pendants, etc.)
• Encaustic and Cold Wax techniques
• Book Arts  (book binding, accordion-style books, journal making, etc.)

• Painting
• Drawing
