Artist Statement I'm an artist living in southern Maryland, whose paintings explore the search for wisdom through stories, allegories and fables. The women in my work are pilgrims on a journey, captured in a moment of discovery, insight and revelation. They are metaphors for our innate desire to gain insight and wisdom, and fulfill the promise of our true potential.

Sacred texts, myths, legends, fairytales and women’s literary and spiritual writings inspire me. I'm a storyteller and my paintings have often been described as "visual poetry". Stories have the power to awaken our imagination and allow us to look at things in a new light.

Since ancient times, wisdom has often been personified as a feminine spirit. This spirit has taken on many forms: co-creator, wise sage, angelic messenger, saint, goddess and prophetess. The Book of Proverbs in the Old Testament speaks of “Lady Wisdom” as a priceless treasure:

“Blessed are those who have discovered wisdom,
those who have acquired understanding!
Gaining her is more rewarding than silver,
her yield is more valuable than gold”.

I hope that you will be inspired by these visual stories. 10% of all net proceeds of my prints go to charity.
