Artist Statement

These paintings grow out of the painting process. When I begin, I have no idea what the finished painting will look like. Lately my paintings have transformed themselves into imaginary views of the world around our house in North Garden, Virginia. These paintings are like memories that I have uncovered hidden in the many layers of acrylic paint.


Born in Edinburgh, Scotland to American parents (6-21-56)
Educated at Davidson College (A.B., 1979)
