I enjoy making all kinds of art. Photography, Painting and Digital Processes are all part of my active pursuits.
I am always working on a piece, either on a digital device, sketchbook, wire and beads or canvas. I like to develop my work in a series and I enjoy commissioned work as well. Recent commissions include a large paint pour reproduction off Helen Frankenthaler's "Terra Cotta" and a large installation of 8 pieces for the Lenore Apartments in Mt. Vernon. Conceptualizing art and creating it for you is extremely satisfying.
I have a BA degree from the University of Notre Dame of Maryland. After college I became a School 33 studio artist and sold large abstract expressionistic paintings to interior designers in and around Baltimore. My clients included Jim Pannone, Hutzler's and Alexander Baer and Associates. My professional artwork was on hold while I devoted time to raising my girls, Hannah and Rebecca, both successful young women involved in their own artistic pursuits. I can't imagine life without art.
I enjoy sharing what I have learned about the creative process. I am always looking for innovative ways to use the tools I have to create artistic compositions that go beyond the ordinary art that is pervasive in our everyday lives.
