Artist Mother Teacher Curious Person
I recently moved from downtown Charleston to beautiful Beaufort a little further south where the views of salt marsh and water are expansive and the quiet pace is perfect for studio work , creativity and introspection. Because of its proximity to Charleston, I am able to continue to work with Robert Lange Studio Gallery helping them when they need extra support, I also teach privately at Redux Contemporary Arts Center on King Street.
I take and fill commissions and paint and draw. I am passionate about roses. I grow them, nurture them, and when they reward me with their grace, I sit in the garden and paint them from life.
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 some of 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.
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 am available to teach and mentor students and professional artists who want further investigation.
I consider this a very sacred honor. To be in the space of teaching another human being how to access this inner world of creativity, beauty, mystery, through the skills and methods I have gathered from some of the finest artists alive today, is truly holy ground.
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.
