After a 26-year career teaching arts and crafts in a psychiatric hospital, my lifelong interest in design led me to abstract art.
In 1994 I began studying abstract acrylic painting, followed by classes in design, color theory, silk screen, monotype printing, and paper making at many local institutions, including The Corcoran Gallery, Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, The Art League, and Glen Echo. I also work at Apple designing works on my iPad. My work is primarily about color, design, and shape, and has been shown in numerous juried shows and galleries. I have designed greeting cards to benefit 9114HNC (Help for Head and Neck Cancer) a charitable foundation I founded in 2009. I continue to experiment with new materials and art forms such as fused glass and cold wax.
I am a member of the Touchstone Gallery in Washington, DC, the Smithsonian Women's Committee and Upstairs Art Studios at 4948 St. Elmo Ave. in Bethesda, Md.
