For almost 30 years, I accompanied my foreign service husband around the world, giving me the opportunity to create my art in diverse and intriguing locales. But it was finally the colors and images of southern Africa which inspired me to do my most satisfying work. I love patterns and shapes formed by color. Nature is my muse, and I found a never ending supply of inspiration in the people, animals, cloths, baskets and landscape of Africa.
I work with oil pastel, because I enjoy the feeling of being close to my work, and there is something about dirty fingers that I find comforting.
In June 2013, I moved to to Boston, MA. The first few years, I didn't produce any art, but now I'm in a raven and Indigenous women phase, which I'm very much enjoying. I've posted my newest work in the recent works section. If you have any questions, you can contact me at:
