About me

I am a retired Naval Officer turned Social Worker. After working a few years on a psychiatric ward, I realized that what I most wanted to do was to spend more time with my young daughter. Exploring art has allowed me to do that. My work experience taught me that everyone and everything has value and beauty. I have incorporated this thought into my art. I up-cycle vintage windows, frames, glass and various treasures. I use these materials to bring my daydreams to life, and to also interpret the memories and visions of others. I show my work at local galleries in the DC Metro area, and my smaller works sell at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio in Arlington.
