Painting is my language to express my feelings. It is an exciting, intoxicating journey with no end! I received my BA in Studio Art from Bridgewater College and studied further at James Madison University. I founded For Arts Sake children’s camps when my children were young and worked as a graphic designer. I have been a faculty member at The Studio School in Roanoke, Virginia for eleven years, and teach Painting Basics and Beyond, a layered acrylics course. I am a founding member of Signature 9 Gallery.
