I love creating art, because it takes me into that eternal space in which the stresses of time drop away. Ah, to dwell always in that space.
My mother was a well-known artist in Richmond, VA. She taught me drawing when I was a girl and encouraged me in my art. That has meant more to me than words can ever say.
Over the years, I've painted in oils, acrylics and pastels, as well as digitally. My textile arts have included clothing and accessory design, embroidery, knitting, crochet and applique. I've been a photographer for decades and enjoy working with my photos in Adobe Photoshop.
My plays and musicals have been produced by professional, academic and community theater companies. My musical "Blake Street" was produced by Source Theater Company in Washington, D.C., as part of their "Festival of Firsts."
During various stages of its development, THE CRYSTAL APPLE, a musical for young people, was produced by professional and academic theater companies. The musical, which is based on a Russian folk tale, will become available to theaters by 2014.
