I am a painter, and I have lived in Washington, DC since 1984. After working for years as a lawyer and raising three children, I found myself drawn to artistic pursuits. I worked as a fiber artist for several years before discovering my true callings: drawing, painting and collage. In 2018, after six years of study, I was awarded a Master Certificate of Drawing and Painting from the Washington Studio School. While at WSS, I have studied with faculty members Joanne Kaufman, Jill Phillips, Brian Kelley, Katie Pumphrey, Milena Spasic, Jo Weiss and Susan Yanero among many others -- as well as visiting artists Reem Bassous, Catherine Kehoe, Ken Kewley and Stuart Shils. I have a studio in the Jackson Art Center, located in the Georgetown area of DC.
