About me

Industry Arts
Location East Berlin, PA, United States
Introduction I've been painting on and off since the age of eight. My father, a lawyer by profession, is and was also an artist. He would paint in oils on his easil. I would paint next to him on mine as a young girl. I learned how to paint in oils and how to paint people from my him. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Design from UCLA in 1981. I'm a member of Hanover Area Arts Guild, and York Arts Association. My work can be seen at Brath & Hughes Fine Art in Mechanicsburg and at Hillside Medical Building on Eisenhower Dr in Hanover, PA. I paint primarily on Yupo paper. I don't know what I'm going to paint when I start, I let the paint move on the slick paper. Eventually I see an image and will then further define it. While painting, I listen to Christian worship music and see my art as a way to worship the Lord. My work can be seen on my website at I work part-time as a counselor with foster children and use art therapy to help them express and understand their feelings. I will be offering a class at the Hanover Area Arts Guild called "Art As Therapy" starting June 20, 2012
