About Me

My photo
Corvallis, OR, United States
I am essentially self-taught and have been making art and design for decades. I have been a graphic artist, jewelry, furniture and clothing designer, painter and printmaker, art facilitator and teacher. I’ve exhibited my artwork in numerous group and solo shows in the US and Europe. I am originally from Queens, New York where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from Queens College. In order to teach art, I returned to school and received a Master of Arts Degree in Humanities from California State University Dominguez Hills, and a Practice-based Doctoral Research Degree in Fine Art-Painting from De Montfort University in Leicester, England. I also hold another Master of Arts Degree in Education. I have taught studio art and design, art history, research, and education for over 12 years at the graduate and undergraduate levels, online and on ground. I recently closed my studio in Asheville, NC where I facilitated art and design workshops for 5 years. I now live in Corvallis, Oregon where I continue to make art. I have 4 children and 3 grandchildren.

Autumn Trees 9" x12" Gouache on Paper

This version was made in Photoshop!  I placed one image over the other and clicked on 'difference' in the layers. Thanks for the idea , Sean!

This version was made the same way, except I lightened the layers.

This version was made by darkening the layers.

Feel free to print one if you like! 
It was all about the process for me.
