Mill Valley, CA
My new work explores squares and rectangles in space and color interactions. The feeling of being confined during the coronavirus pandemic inspired these forms. My medium is generally encaustic. I also use beeswax pigment sticks on these new pieces.
Growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, I danced and performed ballet and modern jazz for 20 years. After moving to San Francisco, , I studied art at San Francisco City College, California College of the Arts, and Sonoma State University where in 1995 I received a BFA in painting. I continued with a Post-Baccalaureate Tutorial working with Chester Arnold and Bob Nugent, Bay Area painters and professors. I live in Mill Valley, and have taught workshops in encaustic techniques in California and Hawaii.
I have shown my work extensively in the U.S. and the Bay Area.
