I have been drawn to angels ever since I discovered the images of the Angels of Pompeii. Long after its destruction by Vesuvius in 79 A.D. the angels remain. These frescoes of angels painted on the decaying walls of the ancient city have captivated me ever since. I have dreamed of visiting Italy for most of my adult life. It is only now in my autumn years this dream is coming true, allowing me to teach what I love!

My work as a fiber artist working with fabric and fiber to create abstract 3-dimensional forms was my focus for many years. I started painting full time in 2009 focusing on portrait/figure work painting in acrylics, watercolors and mixed media. Fractured Angels is the continuous thread throughout my work. My art parallels my spiritual journey and I identify with the flawed, cracked and fractured human yearning for peace and fulfillment.
The older I get the stronger the pull to explore and express this theme in my work. Along the way I discovered I loved teaching. I find the creative process so incredibly interesting. My energy lies in that process and to share that with others has been the most fulfilling role of my life. The spiritual nature of the creative process is something that I think about a lot. The idea of constant practicing of my craft along with allowing myself to let go in moments of creating is the key to authentic art.
