I am passionate about painting and teaching. My work is a representation of ordinary objects and interior spaces--a nexus of daily ritual and painting as spiritual practice. I work in oil and other drawing media and artworks range in size from large canvases to small panels. In the classroom, I find inspiration from my students and delight in coming alongside them as they become makers and creative problem-solvers.
I have been making art, mostly painting, for about 35 years. I have been teaching Art and Art History for about 25 years. I have been a museum guide, a muralist, a lecturer, a curator, a designer--really just about anything having to do with art.
