My art is all about people – the human face and figure in
all of its ages, activities and manifestations. Sometimes I venture into other genres including landscape, but usually a person happens into that landscape. People are
endlessly fascinating to me, and I never tire of drawing and painting
them. You'll see in my work a variety of media and styles as it's important to me always to explore and allow my inner inspiration to guide me
wherever it will.
husband John Harrod and I perform as a duo and in our band, Kentucky Wild Horse, and are active in the fascinating world of
Old-Time music. John and our musician friends and traditional
music forebears make wonderful subjects for my paintings. I also love to explore beach subjects and
people interacting with animals.
I've been a maker of art all my life, but following my
retirement in 2006 from Kentucky Educational Television, where I served as
communications director, I’ve made art my second career. A collection of my music-related work is displayed
as part of the permanent collection of the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. My official portrait of Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Janet Stumbo will be unveiled
in the Kentucky State Capitol shortly. My work is also included in the Brown-Forman
collection in Louisville.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I've been a voracious student of art since my college days, taking art classes, visiting museums and reading about art. I'm most inspired by the Fauves and early modernists and those who pursued figurative work even during Abstract Expressionist days.
I work in oil, watercolor, gouache, ink and multimedia.
