My sunny family was like gold: two children, a dear husband, a struggling art career, and a lovely old home which we had renovated.  Blessed.   Within 10 years, cancer claimed my husband and the fear of lack compelled me to move to an apartment.  I accepted a full time position teaching High School Visual Art.  My children moved away … Read More

Several of those shapes have become fully developed paintings on their own, but diagrams … Read More

Fire and Ice Artist Statement

I love to explore ideas in my acrylic paintings: objects that could be very old, sea-or-land scape that triggers a memory, or animals that I connect with.
