Hi There !
I've spent my entire life working on art projects: drawings, paintings, illustrations, murals, and scenic designs. You can see some of my murals in Fairfax County, Virginia RECenters: Audrey Moore, Cub Run, Lee District, Providence, South Run, and Spring Hill.
Through my former company, Britten Grant Event Design, I produced countless scenic backdrops for every kind of special event. Some of my clients included: National Wildlife Federation, Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Wolf Trap Center for the Performing Arts, WJLA - Channel 7, INOVA Foundation, HealthNet, Novant, and many more.
My scenic art has also been used for theatrical and ballet productions. Working with Manassas Ballet Theatre, I designed and painted scenes for Cinderella, Don Quixote, Giselle, Romeo & Juliet, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and the Nutcracker.

These days, my favorite past time is wandering around the woods of Virginia and beyond. You might have seen me on the trails with my kids, Keeka and Tyler, and my dog, Ari. We hike all around the DC region. Some of my favorite hikes are around Great Falls and Scott's Run. I especially love to head out to the mountains and hike the rock scramble on Old Rag mountain. Sometimes I have the opportunity to travel to cool places like Lake Tahoe or to a National Park like Acadia, Bryce or Zion. I always bring my sketch book and take photos.
Back in my studio, I make paintings of highlights from these adventures.
