“If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” – Edward Hopper
After earning an Associate in Arts in Annapolis, Maryland, I planned on continuing my art education, but life intervened, and I relocated to beautiful Warrenton, Virginia. I immediately fell in love with the area as it was so like my home state of rural West Virginia. The comforting mountains, sleepy small towns, and refreshing waterways inspired me to continue painting even as a B.S. in Business and my subsequent career took me down another road. After ending a corporate career, I was able to immerse myself in my art, my first love.
Every painting is an experiment, and oil is a forgiving medium. I enjoy all subject matter but am especially captivated with transparent and reflective objects. Reflections in windows and on still water change one's perspective and even point of reference. Light passing through glass and liquid is especially challenging and fun.
I am fortunate to be a member here at Middle Street Gallery and at Brush Strokes Gallery in Fredericksburg. I show in other local venues in Middleburg, Millwood and the surrounding area.
