Find me:

"Every calling is great when greatly pursued." (Favorite quote)
"Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Do nothing, say nothing and be nothing and you will never be criticized."
- Elbert Hubbard


"Celestialisms", as Jennie calls them:

"I'm not trying to get one over on anybody, I'm just facilitating getting my way."
"Integrity is inconvenient."
"I don't want to commit to a perceived solution." (Meaning, "I don't want to do that.")


July 22, 2017

Well, I've made an important decision. I've decided to let go of my "other life" as a public
policy professional and go all in on my art - painting and photography. I spoke to a gallery
on Wednesday and I am most likely going to do a 5 ft. by 8 ft. painting for show/sale
there (yes, huge - my largest to date!). While I have been in galleries in North and South
Carolina, I have not sought gallery representation since I moved back to Virginia. While I
am proud of my accomplishments in my career and education, I have moved to a new
phase of my life, and I am excited about it. Now I need to build an inventory.
