Art is my passion. I cannot live without Art! My love of flowers is evident in my work but I have done landscapes and portraits also. I really enjoy painting dogs and you can see some in the "Sold" section. There is so much beauty in life all around us that we never notice - a gorgeous sunset, a wild daisy, a shiny red apple, bouquets of flowers at the market, etc. My goal as an artist is to take the ordinary and put it on the canvas so that you, the viewer, will notice the beauty of the ordinary. I paint what I love, and I hope you love it also !

I began taking classes at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia. Currently, I Live in Easton, MD and have taken classes there with Louis Escobedo at 717 Gallery, at the Art Academy and Chesapeake Fine Arts Studio. I believe it is important to continue taking classes and learning, always learning.
