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.

Only a few spaces left for the Mash-Up Class!  


Mystical Mixed Media Mash-Up, June 9, 10

Sat & Sun, June 9 & 10
10-3 Sat, 10-1 Sun
This is a great way to create enchanting, mystical mixed media pieces!  The Wabi-Sabi aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".  Embrace the flow of something beautiful during the class.  Excellent class for beginners!  Collage papers, permanent pens, various inks and acrylics will be shared with the class.  (If you bring extra, bring natural fiber decorative papers, vintage priced, ephemera, patterned paper, handwritten paper... your choice! You can never have enough paper!)  Bring four cradled wood boards 8 x 8 - 1.5" to 2" deep, scissors, and one small bottle of Liquatex gel medium matt.  Be sure to bring lunch!
*If you are looking for papers, check out The Fine Art! They have a fantastic selection.

Home- Encaustic

I love being home, no place like it!
This past weekend was Open Studios Tours and I opened up my home to the public.
I had two amazing guest Artists, John Morgan,  his wife Charlotte,  and Aggie Zed.

We all had the pleasure of talking about our art and how fortunate we were to have beautiful weather.
A special thank you to everyone who came by and for all the art collectors out there.
Hats off to you for great conversations and compliments.

See you again next year.
