Employing comic humor I transform the imaginary into the real, creating facts from fictions. My chalk pastel characters, derived from dreams, fairytales and myths interpret contemporary life in odd vignettes of conflict, misunderstanding and relationships gone awry.
I teach drawing and painting at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and do workshops in pastels throughout the area. My work has been exhibited frequently in solo and group shows and has received numerous awards.
