This painting was done on a piece of wood that was recovered during the renovation of my 1878 red brick schoolhouse. In some sections of the painting you can see the grain of the wood showing through the paint. The wood gives the piece a richness and depth you can't get from a canvas. The wood is cradled and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

She finds that most of her best work springs from difficult times. Her current work explores a range of emotions and facial expressions through portraits. In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
