In the tradition of the Abstract Expressionists, my work stems from a subconscious and intuitive process. I record my energy and passions, and the works are truly an expression of my soul and experiences. Essential to the language of my painting is the layering of textures, marks, and color to create a history of surface. Travels to Italy and exposure to the sensibility of the eroding nature of ancient architecture and the stories within have influenced my latest work. I build up and tear down, excavating to recreate a sense of the mysterious through many layers of media. In this process, I cherish the freedom I have found to experiment, express, and explore the world through my work.
I am an artist/painter/framer living and working in Virginia. I am a Signature Artist member of Baltimore Watercolor Society, Signature Artist member of the Virginia Watercolor Society and a member of the National Watercolor Society. Workshops are available to art groups. After traveling for 26 years participating in outdoor art festivals, my work is now represented by several galleries and arts centers. I have exhibited and won awards in numerous juried shows throughout my career. My work is included in various collections- private and corporate- both nationally and internationally.
