Since childhood the works of Matisse, Miro, Klee, O’Keeffe, and later Picasso, Kline, Nevelson, Kandinsky, Diebenkorn, Hockney, and Krasner have excited me. More recently I have been enthralled with aboriginal art from the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest, the Pacific Islands , Australia, the Caribbean, and Zimbabwe. After receiving a degree in Fine Arts and Art Education from Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, I began a twenty five year career in scholastic arts. The directness, sense of purpose and joy with which children approach their artwork inspired and challenged my own visual conversation. Graduate studies in visual design were pursued at George Washington University, Washington, DC. and the University of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii.

 

Early years were spent in Pennington, New Jersey. As part of a military family, I raised my children, traveled, and worked all over the planet. I was happy to leave some of my work with collectors in these special places across the United States and Territories. The hundreds of students I worked with from kindergarten to college in pubic school Title One programs, multicultural urban schools, parochial schools, private programs and workshops, community colleges, continue to inform my work. It was my pleasure this past Fall to conduct a six week painting workshop for the Pace Center for Young Women in Broward County, Florida. Our paintings are being exhibited at several locations on Florida’s East Coast in the Winter and Spring of 2013.

 

I have been represented in numerous commercial galleries: notably, The Torpedo Factory, (Alexandria, Virginia), R Street Gallery (Washington, DC), Artloft, Inc., Gallery EAS, Royal Culture Arts, and AMFAC Center (Honolulu, Hawaii), SONA Gallery, Ozborn-Lizio Gallery, Sweet Art Gallery (Naples, Florida), Red Trombone Gallery (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida). My work has been curated into museum shows including, Dimok Gallery, George Washington University, Artists of Hawaii Award Show, Honolulu Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Art Athenaeum (Alexandria, Virginia), David Adler Cultural Arts Center and Museum (Libertyville ,Ill.), Founders Show, Von Liebig Art Center, and Incognito, Naples Museum of Art at the Philharmonic Center (Naples, Florida). I was featured on the Naples Studio Tour sponsored by Friends Of Art Patty and Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art, 2010. My paintings have appeared in publications such as Sun Sentinel, Ft. Lauderdale, Naples Illustrated, Naples Daily News, Gulf Shore Life, Virginia Pilot, Washington Post, and Honolulu Star Advertiser. Selected collections include Bank of Hawaii, HMSA, Marriott, Peat Marwick Main & CO, Lutgert Cancer Center, Florida Cancer Specialists Collection, Charlot Foundation Award and Purchase. Awards include Biennial Charlot Foundation Award (1986) and the Regional Grumbacher Gold Medallion (1987).
