Artist Statement:

I have created art most of my life. I rekindled my drawing and painting skills in portrait and figurative work by participating in the art community at The Drawing Studio with Phil Sylvester as my teacher. I completed four art classes with him and joined a figure drawing group that met monthly in his classroom space.

My art work was further enhanced by participating in two group art shows and being a member with the artists at the Talisman Art Gallery. During this time, I joined an art critique group with five other artists. I have been meeting monthly with them for approximately five years. I am actively pursuing artistic ventures.

My passion and inspiration to complete An Iris Stands Tall, defined my creative life in fine art and writing for three years. I received grant support from Regional Arts and Culture Council and the Puffin Foundation to support this exhibit. I recently was asked to complete ink drawings for a Cerimon House event called Evening Quiet. This project was completed in August 2018 and is exhibited at Cerimon House. Currently, I am devoted to completing my next exhibit, I Pledge Allegiance: Concepts of Patriotism, Division and Unity.
