My journey in the arts lead me to 32 years
of sharing a passion to explore and express
my personal visual language with young students
in an Atlanta Independent School.
I created and marketed art in
my studio/gallery in the Tula Art Center,
a large warehouse complex in Buckhead
that housed several prominent artists and galleries.
The combination of these helped me gain
recognition in the art community.
Participation in various Atlanta art shows and
representation by local galleries placed
my work in private and corporate collections.
Prior to and during that time I learned many
different techniques and media.
My portfolio includes oils, acrylics,
watercolor inks, digital manipulations,
encaustic, cold wax 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 is paying
attention to my surroundings and environment.
That is where I find the most interesting
interactions with shape and color,
line and texture.
Manipulation of the elements of design, materials
and techniques provide me with ideas
to satisfy the intense need I have
to express my life through visual imagery.
