JAG Featured Member Artist
My work for the past 35 years has always been about patterns—in buildings, in people, and in nature. I believe that there are always patterns to be illuminated, and I have tried to do that with oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolor and silkscreen.
Art is the one thing that connects the artist with the viewer and with the surrounding world, and there is nothing like the feeling when someone sees what the artist saw in a specific painting and appreciates the uniqueness and beauty of the subject.
Pastels were my first medium and from there, I studied other techniques at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and later, at the University of Notre Dame of Maryland. During that time, and subsequently, I exhibited at several shows in locations in and around Baltimore, and won awards for several pieces.
When I retired from Johns Hopkins University, where I had been a medical writer for 25 years, I moved to Jacksonville. My work at Johns Hopkins gave me an appreciation of what art can do for those in need of support, reflection, and hope. I continue to derive inspiration from the varied forms of vegetation and landscapes that are everywhere in Florida.
I am a member of the National League of American Penwomen, the Jacksonville Artists Guild, FemArt Gallery and the Jacksonville Coalition for the Arts.
I have exhibited both in Baltimore and in Jacksonville, including at the Jacksonville International Airport, and my work is also in private and institutional collections.
