Title or Location: Magnolia Dream
This drawing started as a tribute piece to a musician that I am a fan of, Playboi Carti, and was inspired by the Art Nouveau style. I used colored pencils and Posca markers to get the vibrant colors I wanted, and I was very excited with the outcome. This project taught me compositional skills as well as the benefits of sticking to a defined color scheme.

Title or Location: Nubian Princess
This canvas was an old painting sitting on the floor of my studio. I decided to paint over it, so for a few months I used it to clean off my brushes of extra paint, my roller when I was gelli printing and ink and anything else I had left over from what I had been working on. I then collaged some things on with the intention of painting a skull on it. Being an intuitive painter, when I got out my oils and was about to begin, I knew it had to be a portrait. This was painted from a photo I got o

Title or Location: April
'April' is a 16"x20" in done with fluid acrylics. I discovered fluid art years after nerve damage in my dominant hand took away most of my fine art drawing skills. It has allowed me to explore and express my creativity once again.

Title or Location: Caddy Fins
This piece was based on a series of photographs taken a various car shows. The shape and flow of the automobile rear fins were not to be ignored due to the angular construction and my ability to minimize the detail to give it a truly graphic image.

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.

Title or Location: "Orchestral Dance"
The combination of birds and flowers are dedicated to the two women who were and always will be my heroes. My artist mother who left this earth when I was seven months old and the grandmother who sacrificed her time and energy to raise a very precocious little girl after having raised nine children of her own. For me birds symbolize heavens messengers and flowers symbolize heavens artwork. My grandmother loved birds and raised them with as much care as she raised and loved me. This 9X12

Title or Location: Fantasy get Away Located in Orange Virginia
The owner told me that she wanted something fun, relaxing, and beautiful to adorn her shed. She pointed out the she especially hated the electric meter. About 1/2 way across painting on the shed, she came out with ice tea and asked if I could also include the Blue Ridge Mountains. So, I made the building end (made a corner) and then added some blue ridge mountains off in the background. Finished product has feelings of Greece with Blue Ridge mountains, making it a true fantasy piece!
