I live in downtown Charleston, South Carolina where I am enjoying the beauty of the history and sea all around me. At this time, I am happily employed at Robert Lange Studio Gallery helping them when they need extra support, I also teach privately and fill commissions and paint and draw. I volunteer for the Charleston Parks Conservancy in order to get my gardening fix and tend to the roses of Charleston. I miss my beautiful roses. 

I am a native of Richmond, Virginia and lived in Macon, Georgia for 37 years raising my children.  I am a teacher of art and I often travel to take Master Classes from the world's greatest artists. I'm curious and I'm interested in how to express the world around me. I use many different media from pastel to oil to watercolor to egg tempera. I'm never so happy as I am when I'm making some art or teaching some art. I'm a mother of 3 grown children and from a family of 5 girls. I love roses. 

Recently, I had the honor of being the Curator of Art at The Museum of Arts and Sciences  in Macon, Georgia.  As curator, I had many responsibilities:  to help interpret and preserve the 65  year  old permanent collection, to interview and work with contemporary artists and curate shows, and to bring  art- in all iterations, to our community which serves over 70  counties in Middle Georgia. All things ART- for you and for me- all of us. I wrote about art as well and the blog is called “Reflections on our Collection”.  You can visit my artist interviews at our MAS Instagram TV.

I sit on the Board of Advisors of the Bo Bartlett Center which preserves and shows the magnificent works of Bo Bo Bartlett and other contemporary artists from the region and world at large.

I am available to teach and mentor if my schedule permits. I currently invite students into my downtown Charleston apartment to teach and then we walk to the nearby Gibbes and galleries while I use the fine art of Charleston to teach my students what fine art means.

 

I have a life long career in the arts that is helpful to others. I am a devoted advocate of the arts. Please contact me for more info.
