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.

Signature 9 Featured Artist

The Daydreaming Accountant    24" x 24"    (C)gls

If you are out and about downtown Roanoke 
Friday, the 4th of January, 
I am the featured artist for the month!
Come visit and see many new works in cold wax and oil. 
I'll be there for Art by Night.

Happy New Year!

A fitting poem for the end of my personal year.....

New Year Resolve

The time has come
To stop allowing the clutter
To clutter my mind
Like dirty snow,
Shove it off and find
Clear time, clear water.

Time for a change,
Let silence in like a cat
Who has sat at my door
Neither wild nor strange
Hoping for food from my store
And shivering on the mat.

Let silence in.
She will rarely speak or mew,
She will sleep on my bed
And all I have ever been
Either false or true
Will live again in my head.

For it is now or not
As old age silts the stream,
To shove away the clutter,
To untie every knot,
To take the time to dream,
To come back to still water.

May peace hope and love find their way into your hearts!

Rainy Day

Finally, a rainy day! I just love it. 
I made a big pot of chili and finished this piece, amidst other chores of the day....
Hope you had a relaxing Sunday too!
