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.

Icy Days

February is icy, or can be, and has been. 
All you can do is study it, embrace it, and capture it.

Spring is Coming

Lately I have been mesmerized by the calm of the winter. The snow, as well as the color and the designs created by the snow and the cloudy days, opened up new ways of writing the visual language. 

However, spring is around the corner and developing colors will fill the earth gradually like a time lapsed photograph. Once spring arrives, I always enjoy a ride to Bath County. Since I have had it on my mind, I decided to create another version of a place I love.

February Inspirations

Ah, February is here and I love February weather.....This past week, I found the mornings particularly inspiring. I am becoming familiar with new surroundings, and finding new beauty all around me. There is a wider expanse of the sky, a view of the mountains, and on a sunny day, a lot of bright light that graces the inside the house.

February also gives me the surprise 'gift' of having the day off on snow days! This past week I had two wonderful gifts, one on Monday and another on Friday! The inspiration of the falling snow against a rising morning sun delighted me so....I HAD to capture the magic of the snowy landscape.
