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.

When walking alone in a jungle of true darkness, 
there are three things that can show you the way: 
instinct to survive, the knowledge of navigation, 
creative imagination. Without them, you are lost.” 
Toba Beta,
 My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Navigation (C) mixed media and limestone clay on wood

Navigating...right now I feel as if I am navigating....
especially thriving now on my creative imagination. 
Navigating through the new studio...setting up tables and working 
places in the perfect spot...birthing a new familiarity 
where the visual voice can speak, 
openly...that's the star of my current navigational path.

Spring Pond (C) 12" x 12" oil and cold wax

Well, spring is here and I am finally able to get out in the yard and dig and plant! 
I just finished the new pond and spent most of the evening reflecting.....
past, present, and future.....

The water was so clear and crisp, reflecting all the spring colors. 
Naturally, I had to 'capture' it.
