My initial career as an artist has been the creation of art jewelry in collaboration with my husband Jeff . Our work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Art & Design in NYC, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Renwick Collection at the Smithsonian. Concurrently with this career I've also painted for many years, initially as an apprentice to well known portrait painter in Washington D.C., Danni Dawson. Since 2006 my work evolved from figurative into abstract mixed media, which I've explored with much curiosity and joy. Thru the use of mark making and color my painting has led me to unique personal expression. My work has been shown at SOFA Chicago 2016, The Denver Art Fair 2015, SOFA Santa Fe 2013 and at different venues in Colorado. My education includes apprenticeship with Danni Dawson, course work at St. Marys College of Maryland and VPI in Virginia and a few workshop concentrations including Taos NM at the Fechin Institute with Sheri McGraw, in Maine with Katherine Aimone and in NC at Penland School of Crafts...
