About the Artist
I am a contemporary abstract painter working in acrylic and mixed media. My work ranges from large paintings suitable for corporate settings or large modern homes, as well as many smaller series created with collage and ephemera. These are often whimsical, humorous and unexpected. I have shown work in the region for over fifteen years, including many juried shows, and have also been successful in creating collaborative proposals for several themed art exhibitions, including one at ArtSpace in Raleigh. Recently I was invited to install work at the Greenville Museum of Art (NC) and that show will fill three gallery spaces and remain up for three months.
My work is bold and lively, with daring color combinations and intriguing surface textures. It has been described as cerebral, uplifting and energizing. I love the challenge of commissions and have been successful in creating several custom works for an interior design company in Durham.
Before retirement and enjoying my full time painting career, I taught art at all levels and founded and directed a regionally renowned gifted education summer camp program and as well as operating seven after school art centers under license to Monart in California.
I am active in many community arts initiatives, have been part of two galleries, and have taught and volunteered in Cary, Apex and Raleigh. I am proud to be part of the wonderful community of Cary, and enjoy participating in all our region has to offer.
