I live in Abingdon, MD but display my work at many regional art exhibits, one person shows, local fairs and shows in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. I am proud to have many pieces in corporate and private collections. Additionally, I also have an Open House once a year the first weekend in May and am gratified to be visited by many of my patrons. I am a member of Harford Artists Association, York Artists Association, Baltimore Watercolor Society and the Rehoboth Art League.

My Artist Statement

"Eclectic. I think that says it all. My art reflects my life and that is eclectic. I am unable to channel all my energies towards a discipline that dictates a loss of choices and puts you in a position of trying to feel what you are painting rather than painting what you gee."

My media is primarily watercolors and recent works use Masa paper. A unique effect can be obtained by soaking the paper and crushing it by "waddling" it. This "waddling action" breaks the sizing in the paper and allows the initial application of color (background) to soak well into the paper giving a depth that is exceptional.

My Location

I am located in Abingdon, MD.
