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.

Open Studios Tour Roanoke 2018

Open Studios Tour Roanoke!
April 28 and 29th I will be opening up my home once again for the Open Studios Tour. I will have the Visual Haiku's as well as works created with encaustic and cold wax and oil. In addition, I will have some of my handmade jewelry available. 

My amazing guests are John Morgan, an assemblage artist, and Aggie Zed, painter and potter (sculpture.) Hope you will drop in to take a peek!

If you don't know John Morgan or his work you should!
John is known, currently, for  his work with assemblage. He holds an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.  Longwood University, St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, Sweet Briar College, and VCU hold his work in their permanent Collections.  Altria (Formerly Phillip Morris) and the Virginia Museum of the Confederacy, as well as numerous private and public collectors, own his work. Morgan is the recipient of two National Endowment of the Arts Grants and previously had a one-man show at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Aggie Zed. Another artist you should know!

Aggie Zed’s sculpture ranges from intimately-scaled ceramic figures of people and human-animal hybrids to copper wire and ceramic horses to ceramic and mixed-metals contrivances she calls “scrap floats”. Her scrap floats are intended as entries in a parade of the future.
She currently lives with her husband in Gordonsville, Virginia, where she keeps animals in her life, especially chickens, which defy anthropomorphism .
