Work Description:
Mixed Media and Collage

Biography:
Originally from Baltimore, I moved to Ocean City 47 years ago with my husband, Bob.

As a young child my favorite pastime was drawing. Crayolas were my medium of choice. A house with a path leading to it, a green tree with swing hanging from a brown branch, a yellow sun in a blue sky and a rainbow of many colors arcing over the landscape were my favorite subjects.

After years of teaching high school English and raising two children, I took my first watercolor class. My interest in abstract mixed media and collage followed. Since then I have been “ seeking, organizing, tearing, altering, arranging, overpainting, enriching and finishing” this is the essence of the layerist.

My themes reflect what I see around me— the marsh, the sea, the coastal bays, winter trees, a summer flower garden, the morning sky, an evening sunset or….just a feeling from the soul.

I have studied with nationally known collage and abstract artists. Several years of Japanese sumi painting classes with artist Sihn Ja An Whiteley, influenced the Asian themes of my work.
