Having immersed most of my professional career in the visual art world, I stepped back for a few years to be more involved with my family and other personal matters that needed my attention. Currently, I'm seeking a path to reenter and create a new presence in the art community.
Throughout my teaching career, I continued my education through workshops and seminars with other art professionals in order to stay relevant with current art practices. My goal is to utilize a combination of life experiences, the variety of art techniques and media I have learned and find new ways to share positive energy and beauty through my personal vision.
1986 to Present
My journey in the arts lead me to 32 years of teaching and sharing my passion to explore and express my vision through a personal visual language with young students in the Upper School at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School.
From 1983 to 2012 I worked in my studio/gallery at Tula Art Center, a large warehouse complex in Buckhead that housed several prominent Atlanta artists and galleries. Participation in various local art shows and events and representation by local galleries placed my work in several private and corporate collections.
Studio K-1, Tula Art Center
Ceramic and Painting Studio/Gallery
I created and marketed line of porcelain jewelry through the Atlanta Apparel and Gift Markets.
I created large ceramic relief sculptures, paintings and encaustic art and marketed through several Atlanta galleries—Abstein Gallery, Opus One Gallery,
Thomas Deans Fine Art, Huff Harrington Gallery, Frameworks Gallery.
