I am a creative who works in a variety mediums. I let my intended results define the materials I use. Mixed media work usually includes colored pencils with various watermedia. My series recyclables is made by recycling paper, sculpting textures in the surface, and painting it with gouache. A camera is a sketch pad and the series Beauty in Utility is a photographic essay about the power of design.
• I teach classes in drawing and colored pencil techniques to adults at colleges and art centers
• I give talks about creativity for businesses, meetings, and workshops
• I do workshops in advanced colored pencil techniques.
I earned Signature (CPSA), Experimental Signature (CPX), and Five Year Merit recognition for my artwork from the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA). My work has won awards in local and national juried art competitions and it has been published in the books The Best of Colored Pencil 4 and Signature Showcase. In addition, I created the photography book I’d be nice to come home to about furniture left on the street.
I earned a BFA degree from Boston University and studied website development at the Corcoran Museum School.
