I enjoy exploring the relationships of texture, color, shape and line. Working in an abstract or impressionistic style allows me the freedom to experiment with these relationships until I am satisfied with my creation. As a painter, I work in acrylic and mixed media incorporating the technique of collage. I also use this technique as a printmaker with the collagraph and monotype. The printmaking, painting and sculpture influence each other. My inspiration comes from many places: the spiritual, nature, people, dance, music, textiles, costumes and calligraphy from various parts of the world.
I received my BFA from the University of Maryland and studied at Maryland Institute of Art and The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have also sudied with individual artists. My studio is located on Cape Ann in the town of Rockport, Massachusetts. My work is available in local Galleries and Art Associations in Rockport and Gloucester, Ma.
