acrylic & collage works
Two quotes seem to fit my approach to art: the first by Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist after he grows up.” and the second, by Marc Chagall, “I work in whatever medium likes me at the moment”. I need variety and continually experiment with new materials and techniques. Rules are seldom followed. Much of my work portrays a visual story and incorporates an expressive, playful perspective. Imagination, curiosity and observation are my “sandwiched” go-to for ideas. Recent work, whether collage, mixed media or straight painting in watercolor or acrylic, emphasizes color, texture and composition…sometimes abstract, other times loosely representational. I want the viewer (as well as myself) to have fun. There’s always meaning in what I do, but my work doesn’t ask to be analyzed too deeply. Please, step in, take a look, and enjoy!

paintings in acrylic & oil
I paint the flow of movement and light across surfaces. I am most attracted to the complex patterns and colors found in nature. Often a small fragment of the larger landscape becomes my subject; leaves, coral, a fallen tree.
For me, it’s all about the paint – the process – focusing on color and shapes. I love to paint complicated subjects and to work out the complex of colors in order to create a unique image. I have a quote taped to my easel by Pierre Bonnard “The object is not to paint life. The object is to make painting come alive.” That’s the challenge.
For me painting is a journey of discovery, challenge and renewal. It’s a process of continual learning. My work is done in oil, acrylic and pastel.
Trained as an anthropologist and cartographer, my professional career focused on tourism marketing. After years of taking art classes, observing other artists and painting in my spare time, in 2006 I retired to paint.
Blank Canvas Student artworks will also be on display.
Olio CoWorking exhibitions are a collaboration between Hopkins Center for the Arts and Blank Canvas. Blank Canvas students aid in the exhibition installation as part of an internship program.

paintings & drawings
My journeys to learn, create, and ultimately teach painting started as far back as I can remember with my desire to create pictures. As my love for painting developed, I took classes from a variety of teachers, went to classes, seminars, conventions and visited art galleries and museums. My preferred medium always comes back to oil painting. Combined with my love for animals and nature the subjects are endless.
I now add Still Life and Portraiture to my list of favorite subjects and painting en plein air, in the great outdoors, has enhanced my love of nature. As you can tell I am hard pressed to have a favorite subject, but the styles I enjoy the most are classical oil painting, and impressionism.
I am currently teaching oil painting secrets and techniques at HCA to adults and continue to get excited and thrilled watching their paintings develop.
