I was trained as a figurative artist, concentrating on drawing and painting. I enjoy creating abstract as well as figurative images, although I can’t do both simultaneously. In each genre, I enjoy exploring the relationships between dynamic colors, textures, patterns and shapes.

I have exhibited my work at Abington Arts Center, Cheltenham Center for the Arts, the Philadelphia Sketch Club, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania State Museum, New Grounds Print Workshop, Montgomery County Guild of Professional Artists, UADM Gallery, Ann Metzger Memorial Exhibition, Yardley Arts Center, Main Line Art Center, and the New Hope Artists League.
