Welcome to my home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. After careers in social work and education, I’m lucky to spend my days writing novels or creating art. My stories and paintings draw inspiration from the interesting people and beauty of the Shenandoah Valley. Check here for updates about where my work is on exhibit either in a solo show or with other artists in BozART Fine Art Collective.
