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.

A Different Way of Painting!

This is the new home studio!!! 
Actually there is another half to it, but I need to re-photograph it. So, for now, this is a small idea of what it is like! Part will be a library and the rest for creating. 

Tomorrow, a different way of painting begins! 
WALLS and CEILING! 1,100 square feet of painting....
Priming first, then picking a color (any ideas?). 
I know it will be a horrific task, but I am excited to think about the possibilities once it is done! 

I plan on offering classes and workshops....
or just stop by for tea!

I will keep you posted as things move along!

Studio Day

Today was a great studio day! I got to spend quite some time just painting!!!!! I have had these images stored in my mental files for quite some time and today I made two come to fruition!

'Murmuration', is a mall 8" x8" study in oil and wax. I have two larger panels gessoed and my next studio day will be consumed in creating my true visions for this happening!

'It Has To Rain Sometimes' is more of a textural experiment with cold wax, oil, and charcoal. I am fascinated by the charcoal and how it merges with the oil and wax! This piece is 12" x 12".

Both pieces are available.

Also, I wanted to let you know of two show openings. 
I have had two pieces selected for each of these fine exhibitions!
