Perfect Love" is a drypoint etching that I finished completing the edition as of May 2017. here are only 40 prints in the edition and 15 are currently available for sale. Each print has been hand inked, wiped, printed, signed, and numbered by the artist who created it. The image size is 8" x 10" .

This is so much more than a portrait of a mother and child, but it is a visual picture of love in its purest form. From the beginning of time, the love of a mother for her child is perhaps one of the strongest bonds we know. The mother isn’t just holding her baby, but lovingly cradling the child in her arms. Her arms are an extension of her heart and her body language is one of gentleness, and tenderness. Her love is unconditional and without saying a word, the baby senses her love by her touch, gentle embrace, seeing and experiencing the love in her eyes as the mother memorizes each tiny feature of her babies face. She marvels at the miracle of life given her as she watches each breath as the infant’s chest slowly rises and falls.

Perhaps the mothers is whispering prayers of thanks to God, daydreaming about what he or she will grow up to be one day, or perhaps the mother is humming a lullaby, but the world around her stands still for these precious moments spent in wonder and awe of the new life in her arms. A New Life, a New Day, New Art in this New Year.

Biography updated Oct 16, 2018

I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BFA in graphic design in 1985. My primary areas of concentration in college, and in the years to follow, have been Drawing and Printmaking, although I also enjoy working in Pastel and Oil Painting. Over the years I have participated in many outdoor art shows, exhibited my work in local galleries and had my work accepted, exhibited, and awarded in various National Shows across the United States. One of my pastels, “Late Summer afternoon on the LeTort” was printed in a Fly Fishing Book published by Stackpole Books called “Selectivity”, written by a well-known author and fly fishing guide. I was also blessed to have a large color etching displayed in the Augusta National Club House, accepted and sold at the Master’s Golf Tournament from 1992-94. I was very fortunate my “Augusta National, View from Magnolia Lane” color etching was purchased by many patrons from Miami to California, Europe to South Africa as well as from the Far East. Truly humbled and honored, some of my patrons were past Master’s champions.

I enjoyed the opportunity to teach Youth and Adult, Drawing and Printmaking classes at the Danville Community Art Center in KY from 2011 to 2015 until my husband and I moved back to Ohio. We currently reside in Beavercreek, OH where I work full time in my home studio and am excited as now have my worked exhibited in the ARTery, and Village Artisans Galleries in Dayton, OH.
