My journey in the arts lead me to 32 years of sharing my passion to explore and express my vision through a personal visual language with young students in an Atlanta Independent School. I also had a studio/gallery in a large warehouse complex in Buckhead that housed several other artists and galleries. The combination of these helped me gain recognition in the art community and local galleries placed my work in several private and corporate collections.
Prior to and during that time I learned many different techniques and media. My current work embraces a culmination of those experiences as I continue to explore ways to develop my visual voice.
Several media appear in my portfolio--oils, acrylics, watercolor inks, digital manipulations, encaustic and ceramics. My most recent work embodies large intuitive abstract colorful compositions. However, I love creating small ceramic figurative sculptures as well as making small books, jewelry and gift items.
The richest source of inspiration for me is paying attention to my surroundings and environment. That is where I find the most interesting interactions in shape and color, line and texture. Manipulations of those elements and the materials and techniques I’ve learned over the years provide me with ideas to satisfy the intense need I have to express my life through visual imagery.
