Marble Twirl Again is a expressive, colorful still life that looks like it is twirling.  The circular motion of the marble leaves, the lines in the cloth it is on, the swaying drapery in the back, and the reflection in the plastic table create an illusion of movement.  

This painting is from a show I entitled Dual Images.  I did the same subject matter twice but in a different medium and a different approach.  The show was a great success and former art critic for the Roanoke Times, Ann Weinstein, gave me a great review!




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.
