I am a Multimedia Professional Artist who is primarily a painter, but who has also worked in all kind of fiber arts, photography, mixed media and recycle arts. I have been exhibiting my art in solo and juried shows since 1989 and ran my own art gallery showing exclusively my own work at Blake Street Studios in City Market from 2010-2015 and currently work from my home studio in NW Raleigh. In addition to Imuj Gallery, I am an artist member of Artspace and The Visual Art Exchange Galleries in downtown Raleigh.
While exhibiting my art through the years, I was simultaneously teaching Art with the Wake county public school system. I am a retired twice certified National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Art Educator who taught at Wiley International Studies Magnet School for 25 years and was named The North Carolina Art Educators Association Elementary Division Teacher of the Year in 2009!
For fun as well as profit, I play percussion and sing in a duet band called the "Boomers". We do cover songs that influenced the Baby Boomer generation but mostly from the 1970's!
