Artist Statement

Sea breezes, dappled sunshine, and tropical colors, my batik compositions take viewers on a sensory tour.  I love tropical plants, the changing colors of the water and sky, and expressions on faces, human or animal.  I want people to see my work and get a feeling for the way I see things.  I want the colors to make them smile and the paintings to make them feel the movement of the moment.

Raised in Maryland, my brief college career includes Virginia Commonwealth University and Maryland Institute.  I feel that my real artistic education began when I started traveling.  I also took a workshop at San Miguel, Mexico's Instituto Allende that changed the course of my artistic life.  In Mexico, I was introduced to the art of batik.  I was so intrigued with the almost backward way of creating a design that I've been working in the medium ever since.
