I’m a Gallery 209 artist, at Artists & Makers 2. I love to make art and learn about art-making by experimenting in my studio, by viewing and discussing art with others, and through living and dreaming. I have been creating art for sale for about 15 years, and have studied under Indianapolis and DC area artists. My paintings are abstract or representational, often inspired by nature or the curious images in dreams. I paint with encaustic (heated, pigmented beeswax) and fluid paints on wood, art board, canvas or paper and like to add fibrous and colorful papers, fabric, ink, beads, and found materials for fabulous textures. I am a board member of the Montgomery Art Association and a member of the International Encaustic Artists.
