I am a proud Teaching Artist!
I have been creating art my whole life and I love helping others get involved in the creative process. I offer a variety of classes for people of all ages and all levels. The benefits of art making are evident with each participant. (see Group Programs)
Besides teaching, I create fine art in various forms. I am constantly exploring how I can relate my imagery from one medium to another.
My work extends from realistic to abstract. It includes drawings and paintings in several mediums, and mixed media pieces. I also make unique quillings with paper and metal. Arcs and circles are prevalent in my work, representing motion and unity. I am inspired by nature and my Textile Design background.
Much of my work has been commission based. I customize my art to reflect my clients' requests. Their input is important to me. And so is the creative exchange I have with my students. Helping people with their visual expression helps me with mine. My visual voice is ever-changing. Being a maker is always thrilling for me!
I accept individual and commercial commissions in various art forms and always welcome clients' input to ensure collaborative, custom pieces. I strive to get people involved in the process of art making to promote Social Creativity and the benefits of self-expression through visual art.
