Freelance artist/writer - work featured in local gallery. The work in the local gallery is not only my paintings but also my pottery and clay sculpture. I have a bachelor of fine arts and a masters in public administration. The first is my love, the second so I could earn a living should I need to. I am an experienced researcher and grant writer. I was in a prior life an internal auditor and grant writer for a government organization, a reporter, copy editor, and ad designer for a small newspaper. I am a published poet and an artist who actually does sell my work, I also do pottery and clay sculpture. I grew up in a multitude of places since my poppy was an air force gentleman. At the age of 8 I won a design contest for a dress I designed for the Oleg Cassini doll. I am happy to work from a photograph if you have one of a favorite time, place or person you wish to have reproduced. .I loved England and Northern Ireland but am ecstatic about Italy and Sacre Coeur in France. My website is currently under construction but will be on soon and I will list it when it is.
