About the Artist
Art has been part of my life since childhood. As I learned to paint, I quickly developed an interest in human form, and have painted mostly portraits ever since. My favorite mediums are oil on canvas, charcoal and pastel on paper.
I use multiple photographs as my model, so in-person sitting/posing is optional. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have questions or would like to see samples of my work.
I have lived and worked in Takoma Park for decades and have fallen in love with the community’s artistic flair, diversity, and the multitalented residents who flourish here and generate endless inspiration to us all. It has been especially inspiring to work with Eleanor Landstreet in her Things from Egypt and Beyond store and with the many local artists we featured in the Back Wall Gallery and the Takoma ARTery window shows.
