I love to make art and learn about art-making by experimenting in my studio, by viewing and discussing art with others, and through living and dreaming. My paintings are abstract or representational, often inspired by nature or the curious images in dreams. I paint with heated beeswax and fluid paints and pastels on wood, art board, canvas or paper and like to add fibrous and colorful papers, fabric, ink, beads, and found materials for fabulous textures.
I have been creating art for 20 years, have studied under Indianapolis and D.C.-area artists, and have attended many on-line art classes and workshops. I am a member of Gallery 209 at Artists & Makers Studios, the Montgomery Artist Association, International Encaustic Artists, and the Jung Society of Washington.
