I came of age during the 1960s. As a lawyer and citizen I was and am a champion for gender equality. I paint the female figure in sometimes absurd, sometimes haunting locations. Far from creating emotionless family portraits, I blend color and imagery to explore themes of mythology, literature and philosophy and emotion. Here and there I will do a floral or landscapes and faces too.
I studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. My work has been shown in Galleries across the nation. I am a signature member of the Baltimore, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia watercolor societies. I choose watercolor as a medium because it is fluid and sometimes serendipitous. I also do woodcut prints and carvings in wood.
Thirty years ago, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. In addition to painting, I am highly visible in the community providing support and advocacy for all those who suffer from mental illness. The bipolar helps shape my work, more in some collections than in others.
