I have enjoyed taking many classes and workshops here and abroad – in Bermuda, France, Italy and Ireland – and have participated in shows and exhibited at many venues. I am a member of the Arlington Arts Alliance, the McLean Art Society, and the Oxford, PA Artists Alliance – and the Gallery Underground.
My favorite subjects for painting include landscape, florals, architecture, figures and still lifes, often in watercolor. This medium appeals to me because of its sparkling, transparent effects. Acrylic paint, also water-based, is a nice contrast to watercolor and is fun to manipulate for textured effects. No matter what the medium, it is exciting and challenging to start with nature and interpret it to produce one’s own work of art.
