Drawing

Website

I believe dreams are worth tending to! I create happy dream images to cheer the moment up! My colored pencils bring paper to life with joy as playful and colorful as the creatures, landscapes, and insects that I draw. My creations are available in prints, ear rings, pendants, and art.

I work part time in a gallery featuring American Crafts and sell my wares in several nice shops and a studio tour in West Virginia, Over the Mountain Studio Tour. I have a year round gallery home at Dickinson and Wait Gallery (304-876-0657) in Shepherdstown, WV. My work is also available in Tamarack: The Best of WV, Beckley, WV, Gifts Inn, Boonesboro, MD and Wild About Nature (OBX).

Come visit us, during the Over the Mountain Studio Tour for hiking, excellent crafts and art, great restaurants, river recreation, and old town hospitality.

Biography

I come from a lovely artistic family….. actor/director/playwrite/artist parents, artist sister, composer/therapist brother. I love all my lovely in-laws too. I have lived in the Shenandoah Valley for over forty years and consider the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia the top of the Valley. My horticulturalist husband, two zany brother cats and I live at the tippy top of that valley. This is a beautiful place to live and be creative. My colored pencils have endless inspiration in the landscape and the dreams that are conjured up here.
