Artist Statement

My artwork is a direct reflection of the observations I have made throughout a lifetime of travel. Inspiration for my painting and printmaking comes directly from my trips to all seven continents and all fifty states. I like to use light, shape and color to capture the atmospheric and physical characteristics unique to each region. As each piece evolves, I am transported back to the places that I have visited. I can see the morning mist in Ireland, the beautiful sunsets of Santa Fe, and the Northern Lights of Iceland dancing across the winter sky. I expect my work to continue to evolve as my future trips take me to parts of the world I have yet to experience!

Summary

I am an award winning artist who enjoys both painting and printmaking. I work in a variety of medium including encaustic, oil/cold wax, oil as well as acrylic. My work was featured in MOMA’s 2018 digital online learners show, the CBS Sunday Morning Show and in many regional, national and internationally juried shows. I am a member of the Capitol Hill Art League, the Maryland Arts Council, the Maryland Federation of Art as well as several museums. I serve as a remote volunteer for the Smithsonian Associates where I provide support to online studio art courses. I have been creating art for most of my life, and returned to the studio full time in 2019 following my retirement from a successful career in Information Technology.
