Hi There!

"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time." Georgia O'Keeffe

Its so nice to meet you! I am an expressionistic acrylic painter who loves big bold color, lots of flowers, and painting outside. So, get yourself a cup of tea, pull up a comfy chair, and spend some time in my colorful world.

New in the shop:

Who doesn't love to get a handwritten note in the mail? These days, the only thing in my mailbox is bills and ads, so I'm trying to change that for my friends. Lately, instead of pulling out my book or phone while waiting for appointments, I've been bringing a few notecards and writing to friends while I wait. You can do that too, or, why not write your own birthday message, instead of spending time in the store desperately looking for a card that isn't too sappy, or a mean "you are so old" joke? 

Each notecard set comes with two each of four floral designs with envelopes, and at only $20 a set, they are a bargain. They make great teacher's gifts too! 


Adult painting classes:

Join me Wednesday evenings at the Dulles South Multipurpose Center in Loudoun County, VA, and brighten cold winter nights with bold splashes of color. With demos and individual instruction, I will take you step by step through making a painting you will be proud to hang in your home. Let me help you make 2018 your most creative year yet!

Teen painting classes:

Teens, don't let your parents have all the fun! I have a new class especially designed for you. This winter, the focus is on animals, however, you can bring photos of any subject you are inspired to paint. I will help you make a painting you love, and along the way, you will learn the fundamentals of acrylic painting.
