Welcome to my home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. After careers in social worker 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.



Best wishes for a peace-filled holiday with family and friends. This note card is available in the gift shop at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center.




Thorny Passion

Beginning in April 2017 the Newport News Gallery, Downing Gross Cultural Arts Center sent this painting for exhibit world wide as part of a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th Birthday. This painting is now in China!
