"My portraiture is infused with emotional content, expressing the vulnerability of my female subjects, exploring its many aspects: Traditional, in which appearance and character are foremost; Expressionistic, in which the inner life is heightened, and Stylized, in which the image becomes iconic."
"I am a figurative painter, sculptor, glass artist, and published author on art. In 2013, I was named one of the finalists in the Smithsonian Museum Portrait Competition, and my work, "Frances at 103" was exhibited at the Museum, and was subsequently acquired by the Smithsonian. My two published books on art include "The Creative Path: A View from the Studio on the Making of Art" and "The Joy of Art: How to Look at, Appreciate, and Talk About Art. I am currently at work on the sequel to the latter book, entitled "More Joy of Art: Keys to Understanding and Appreciating Art."
