Biography

My oil paintings reflect a keen interest in art, coupled with a love of nature.The light and unique beauty of a flower compels me to create contemporary floral images on a grand scale. The qualities of light, color, and form enable me to compose a realistic representation. Employing these characteristics and my dedication to floral subject matter is reflected in the expression of the luminous, translucent quality of the petals, subtle value variations, and the abstract shapes of my contemporary designs. My expression of choice, on canvas, is contemporary realism. I have found the beauty of nature compelling, and the challenges it presents for me to strive towards capturing the magnificence of this world becomes a visual adventure.

A former board member and a past president of exhibits at The Mechanicsburg Art Center School and Galleries.

I have exhibited on regional and national levels, as well as in invitational shows. The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts selected my painting of Lavender Petunias for their 63rd annual exhibition. By invitation to exhibit at the annual Histortic Yellow Springs juried show for seventeen years. The Ridgewood Art Institute of NJ, Mid Atlantic juried exhibition, my Primrose painting was choosen. A third place award from the International Artist magazine Oct/Nov 2010 issue, for my Cymbidium Orchids painting.

My artwork has been acquired by corporations as well as private collections.
