For many years I made art in my Provincetown studio. At an inevitable crossroads, a friend talked me into visiting Baltimore in 2003. I fell head over heels for Bmore's historic, artistic and most importantly, eccentric character which made me feel totally at home. I have always been enchanted by the extraordinary ordinary. I continue to be charmed by Baltimore’s distinctive row houses connecting neighbors of all kinds-spaces both private and public-seen differently? the same? everyday. For 15 years I taught in Baltimore City Public Schools, ultimately developing an award winning program for elementary gifted and talented students. During that time, summer studios in Charm City became even more experimental. I am a certified instructor of Grandmaster William C.C. Chen’s Body Mechanics of Tai Chi Chuan and find that practice a great support. I love cats and dogs, as you may have noticed, and the great outdoors.
