After receiving my Masters in Art Ed from VCU, I taught art in public schools for 32 years and 5 years privately. I am continuing my own art making. I have had residencies in France twice and exhibit regularly on the East Coast in juried national shows as well as Europe. I currently teach adjunct part time for University of Mary Washington at the graduate and professional school in art education. My work is mainly mixed media paintings/constructions which include neon sometimes as well as installations. I am a member of Art First Gallery in Fredericksburg, Va. where I live.
