Artist Statement


Since May of 2019, I have been heard saying, “I’ve waited my entire adult life to focus on my art.”  When I decided against a major in art in college, I didn’t realize that I would have little time to create art after teaching all day and raising kids. My excitement shows when I talk about the joy of creating, increasing skills in the media I’m familiar with and challenging myself to find new ways of expressing myself. I am predominantly an abstract artist and have a special affinity for abstract landscapes. All of my work is about color and movement. I paint with acrylics, alcohol inks and watercolor. 

Collage has always been a favorite medium and I have enjoyed using my own printed papers to add to the collages. In addition to “wall art,” I produce journals that are covered with my printed papers and use the left over scraps to create collages for notecards and framed mini-collages. I love to “paint” with needle felting and have incorporated some wet felting into my work, as well as use embroidery and beading. I also make needle felted and embellished pins and earrings. 

In addition to ALOG, I am a member of the Rockville Art League, on the board of the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association, and am a signature member of the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA).
