I left a career in corporate America nearly two decades ago and have since been honing my skills as a silk painter. Originally working out of my 100-square-foot home studio in the Old West End of Muncie, Indiana, in 2023 I moved my studio and gallery five blocks east into Muncie’s downtown historic Murray Building. I am constantly exploring new ways of expressing ideas through my art. Being a student of multiple disciplines, I feel absolute freedom to combine ancient and completely innovative silk painting techniques. I'm always thinking about light, how we experience light as color, and how different patterns of color evoke different emotional responses in all of us. Because silk reflects far more light than it absorbs, I find it to be the perfect medium for using color and pattern to communicate my thoughts and emotions. My art is finally winning awards, selling well and since 2019 I have enjoyed the honor of hand-painting silk scarves to be given as gifts of state by the Indiana Governor. I also teach silk painting to both beginners and the advanced.
I am open for commissions and custom installations. Visit the "Contact Me" page to start a dialogue. I'd love to work with you to bring life and color to your space!
