Artist/Photographer. 2013 Juried Member, Hamilton County Artists Association (photography).
I live in Noblesville, Indiana. I used to teach Anthropology at the college level, but I am an artistic Jack of All Trades, and I find inspiration everywhere. Poetry, short stories, memoirs, paintings, jewelry, photographs, handpainted shoes/boots/handbags, my Baba Luba Nut Dolls (Kitchen Witches, Holiday Angels, and special custom creations) ~ each is an expression of my heart and soul. Professionally, I am a juried photographer with the Hamilton County Artists' Association, and I love photographing local music and art events. I take photos everywhere I go; I put many of them here on my FAA site. I am currently working on several “Series” paintings with inspiration from New Orleans, Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Mexico, Ireland, gardens and flowers, and my childhood in Georgia and recent visits to Louisiana. You will also find prints available from my 'Survivor' Series -- mixed media paintings in honor of Domestic Violence Survivors and Breast Cancer Survivors. As a child, I was diagnosed with an incurable lung disease, so my own physical limitations have challenged my life in many ways. Nevertheless, I find myself constantly creating: I cannot seem to stop! I am happy making things, especially painting, and I am thrilled to have canvas prints available for you here -- I think the prints on canvas give you the same texture as the original acrylic paintings!
Thank you for looking at my Galleries! I hope you enjoy the artwork!
