Creek Bridge is a serene, colorful look at a hand made bridge over a beautiful creek setting.  The bridge draws the viewer into a lovely wooded part of Southwest Virginia.  These types of scenes take me back to my childhood.  I spent a lot of time around creeks.  I was fascinated with the rocks, vegetation, and animals that lived there.  I think kids that are spending a lot of time on electronic equipment would benefit from nature outings.  My husband is part of the Blue Ridge Discovery Group which aims to re-connect children and adult with the wonders of nature.



My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows.  I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene. My paintings were in two group shows on Broadway and my biography is included in The Original Marquis Who's Who in America.

I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for a twenty years as Assistant professor.  I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.

I enjoyed working with Art and Design students.  My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum.  Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class ask me if they could sit in for a class.  I have fond memories of those guest students!  What a great compliment for me!

My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013.  

I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations.  I have originals and prints in thirty-two states,Washington D.C., Canada, Germany, Russia, England, Switzerland, India and Australia.  

I also have paintings in the collection of Hollywood actress Morgan Fairchild.
