If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

About this image:

Win some; lose some. As a person, I am an optimist. As an artist I am persistent. Dawn 1 was NOT ACCEPTED into OH+5 at the Dairy Barn in Athens, Ohio. As a person, I am an optimist. Dawn 1 shown above will be entered in other competitions and at some point, the juror(s) will find it acceptable. I seem to be ahead of my time …

Activities in the arts

My studio is now located at the  Loveland Artist Studios on Main. I outgrew my studio at the Sharonville Cultural Arts Center. Recently I joined the Women’s Art Club of Cincinnati. My paintings have been included in group exhibitions at Wash Park Art in Cincinnati’s OTR and at Indian Hill Gallery.

Travel Writing

Watch for an article in LongWeekends Magazine. I received an assignment to write about Corning Museum of Glass’s Opportunities for visitors to work with glass in their studio hot shop. The article, for the fall/winter issue was sleeved with the September Ohio Magazine. Travel in Michigan was great so I will be posting various photo essays here on my web site.

 Wishing you safe and pleasant travels – ALWAYS!

        As a travel writer it is my responsibility to select the best places, events, and experiences to present to you. Most travel has been on my own though some has occurred on sponsored press trips. Travel listings here will be more informal than my published articles.
