My paintings are meditations often begun before dawn, an intuitive response to changing forms and colors–night into day, day into night. They are a fusion of tradition and abstraction–a kind of visual haiku.
Highlights of my art background include: receiving a B.A. in Fine Arts from Goucher College, studying printmaking in Paris with Misch Kohn, and working as Exhibitions Designer and Librarian at the Baltimore Museum of Art. My work is in the collections of the Sumitomo Corporation, Philippine Embassy, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula and Complete Environmental Solutions, Inc. as well as private collections throughout the world.
