Translating what I see from the world around me to the visual form is an emotional experience that I hope to share with the viewer. I enjoy traveling the back roads of America—most notably the Southwest, West, Georgia, and the Northeast–to find those images and icons that are slowly being lost to our landscape and history. By transferring the images to my canvas I hope to preserve a bit of history and to share the story with the viewer. I endeavor to picture the female and her continuing contribution to the culture of the West in my art also.
Born into a military family in Central Pennsylvania, having the benefit of talented and supportive teachers, living in Washington State, Maine, Texas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Georgia and traveling to the great West and Southwest has broadened my appreciation of the America spirit which I express in my art.
After a career as a professional nurse, formal art education came to me as an adult at Mount Aloysius Junior College, Cresson, PA, graduating summa cum laude –two of the best years of my life. Professionally, I continued to combine my creative abilities and medical knowledge by working in pharmaceutical and healthcare marketing while continuing my education in business management.
Retirement has given me the gift of the time to pursue my art and to continue my growth studying with Albert Handel, Timothy Horn, Bill Davidson, Georgette Liberatore, The Philadelphia Art Students League, and figure drawing sessions with Martin Pate. My art was selected for the 2010 Southern Living Idea House; The Booth Western Art Museum Member juried Art Exhibit, Tubac Center for the Arts, Tubac, AZ, and other juried exhibits and shows throughout the United States.
