Living as an artist in Willlistown Township is a  great source of joy and vitality. It is similar in many ways of  growing up on my family’s land in Villanova, spending as much time as I could in the barn, woods, and fields.  During childhood all the arts  captured my imagination as well as lit my way.  Poems, music, dance, paintings all  were, and continue to be,  resources on my developmental path, opening my own ability to connect and value what stirs in my heart.  I continue learning ways to express these discoveries.

From the 60’s forward I participated with others exploring personal growth, spiritual communities,  energy healing, and always art. In each of these area I joined staff and/or faculty, as well as  facilitating  classes in expressive art. Later classes pertained more to basic principles of art.  Currently, I consider myself a facilitator assisting others to give voice to  their individual expression and find the joy of this experience.  

I am deeply grateful for all that has fed my own passion to create.


My formal training began in the late 60s in Georgia with the late Ouida Canaday, followed by studies with Neil Welliver at the U of Pa Graduate School of Fine Arts.  Among many other excellent  teachers are Tim Hawksworth, Micelle Cassou, and Ian Roberts.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
