I am a classically trained representational artist. My work has been shown at the Glave Kocen Gallery in Richmond, among other venues, and has won awards from local art organizations.
I am a member of the Portrait Society of America, Montgomery Art Association, and the Rockville Art League, for which I am the Membership Coordinator.
I am a quiet person, a listener and observer. Painting is my way of expressing the fullness and nuances of what I see and feel beyond what language can say.
The unspoken poetry and hidden narratives of small, everyday moments are what most intrigue me as an artist. I think of these as quiet connections – between the people I observe, and between these people and myself.
When people interact, I imagine what they might be communicating. When I see an individual’s face, I wonder what lies beneath. The pleasure of painting is questioning my assumptions while coaxing out life on my canvas.
