My paintings are extemporaneous in an effort to capture an emotion, mood, rhythm, a moment in time. Some have described my work as atmospheric. I try to reach for the subliminal, go beyond the conscious and intentional. The lusciousness of oils attract me and is the medium I most often use. I love color, letting intuition guide me in their selection.
Paintings & Commissions
I am happy to have a studio where I can paint and meet art lovers, friends and colleagues. The Torpedo Factory Arts Center in Alexandria, VA is filled with artists — painters, sculptors, crafts, jewelry and textile creators. Our studio contains many of my paintings and also offers spectacular views of the Potomac River. What can be better than painting in this environment?
Some of the paintings on this website are hanging in the studio, but not all of my work is shown here or in the studio (even with a large space there is just not enough room). Unless otherwise noted, all paintings are for sale. Please drop in any time. If you'd like to visit me at the studio please send a message to check my schedule. My studio mate and I try to be open every day, but we each take days off. I don't want to miss you, so please let me know if you plan to visit. Sometimes the Art Center closes early for special events, their calendar is published on TorpedoFactory.org.
At times, I take commissions and am happy to discuss your project at your convenience. Thank you!
