I am a teaching artist for the MD State Arts Council and have been trained in Arts Integration (coordinating Fine Arts with Academics). I would consider myself a mixed media artist. I work with paint, glass, pen & ink, clay, wood, metal, etc. As a painter (all types - portrait, landscape, illustration, stylized, murals, etc.), I feel that I can acheive many different styles - traditional to abstract. I have had my own art business for twenty years and continue to multitask in assorted art related fields. I also enjoy reading, writing, and travelling; I have a special penchant for children's books both for the stories as well as the illustrations. I have been a designer and executor of commercial leaded glass windows, restaurant interior design, sign painting, and enjoy anything that requires a creative touch. I could keep going...!
