About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Professional Artist/Professor of Art
Location Radford, Virginia, United States
Introduction In my artwork, I seek to celebrate life – the simple and spectacular images all around us. Art patrons admire my intense use of color and texture to enhance daily life and communicate my emotional reaction to beauty. My style is unique to me but has strong impressionistic and expressionistic components. I primarily create large low-level impasto oil paintings but I also work in pastels. I am fascinated by the interaction of light and color in this beautiful mountain region. My paintings, prints, and drawings have been seen in over seventy national, international, and local shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb and Daniel Greene. I have been in two group shows on Broadway and I am listed in the original Marquis’s Who’s Who of America, Who’s Who of American Women, and Who’s Who in the World. I have artwork in private collections in nineteen states, Washingon D.C.,Canada,Germany, and Australia. I taught in the Art Department at Radford University for twenty years. I am now a full-time professional artist. My work can be viewed at, and on ebay classifieds.
