John Singer Sargent Exhibit at the Met

October 9, 2015

“Autumn in New York, why does it seem so inviting?” …ok maybe not quite so inviting when then sidewalks are littered with tourist’s abandoned umbrellas blown inside out from the rain and crazy pre-hurricane winds! But we didn’t let that stop us! My husband Derek and I spent a wonderful four days in New York with my brother and sister-in-law who are both architects in the Big Apple. I was thrilled when I realized our trip would overlap with the...

August 6, 2015

Kyiv Priest 18″x30″ I am extremely excited to announce that this recent painting was accepted into the Portrait Society of Atlanta’s Fall Exhibition! “Kyiv Priest” is a painting that I pondered doing and has been in the works for quite some time.

“From the time he was appointed to the DeKalb Recorders Court bench as the countys first African-American judge in 1983, Judge Hancock has blazed many trails throughout his stellar career as a jurist.

Hilliard Rhodes Jordan, Sr.

May 28, 2015

Mayor Judy Johnson approached me at The Portrait Society of Atlanta Winter 2015 Exhibition opening in Lawrenceville, Georgia and asked me to paint her father. What I later learned was that not only is she the Mayor of Lawrenceville, but so was her father – for 8 terms spanning the 1960’s-1980’s! I am delighted to work with Mayor Johnson and her family on this portrait that will hang in a school being dedicated to him later this fall.  This drawing...
