Briefly a resident of the county in the early 70’s, the mountains have called me back. I returned to live in Rappahannock in 2015. My studio allows me to continue the pleasure of throwing paint while simultaneously breathing in the mountains. I work in oil, acrylic, fabric or mixed media as the inspiration requires. Currently I am working with oil pigment and cold wax. There is a lusciousness to this that reminds me of making mud pies as a child. My work is in many private collections and has been exhibited in may galleries and shows in the DC area. When I am not in the studio I am in my Warrenton office, where I work as an Academic Coach with students who need some individual support with academics.
