Art lifts our spirits and reaches our soul. Artists define the character of our communities. Social distancing may keep us away from one another this holiday season, but we can still stay close. Shop art and consider a handcrafted, personal gift for your loved ones this holiday season.

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and my art career started in Elementary School when the Art Specialist for the City Public Schools noticed two pastel pictures I created in 4th grade. We were drawing to music as part of the Arts program.
A subsequent meeting with my parents ended with my enrollment in various museum art programs and study at a private art studio for 10 years.
I have an Associate of Art degree in Art, but graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, a minor in Science, and a teaching certificate in Math and General Science. I have a M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. While in Michigan, I took many adult education and enrichment classes in art and painted with the Ann Arbor Women’s Club. After moving to Florida, I obtained a teaching certificate in Elementary Education, Math grades K-12, Science 5-9, and Art K-12.
I have incorporated art into my lessons at every opportunity, sponsored after-school art programs, and taught Art as an outside consultant. Since retiring from classroom teaching, I have spent my time developing my collage work which sprung from teaching students about collage and paper tearing.
I love color. I paint what makes me happy or intrigues me.
