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 calling: painting. 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 studied with faculty members Joanne Kaufman, Jill Phillips, Brian Kelley, Jo Weiss and Martin Campos, among others -- as well as visiting artists Reem Bassous, Catherine Kehoe, Ken Kewley and Stuart Shils. While I have made the shift to full-time studio artist, I continue my studies whenever possible, through workshops with master teachers whose insights enrich my understanding of painting and energize my personal studio practice, most especially Jordan Wolfson.
