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, I am focused on landscape painting. Inspired by nature, I feel that my work is actually about the passage of time. The world around us is changing at a dizzying pace. Even the things that seem fixed and solid to us are in a state of motion: morphing from one thing to another. Water is a common element in my work because water is like natures' sculptor, persistently carving and re-shaping the landscape.
My mixed media compositions capture a frozen moment in time, yet the scene seems to be either coming together or falling apart. There is a feeling that in the next moment it will be something completely different: a new variation of the previous scene. I view my drawings, paintings, and mixed media compositions as fitting together in a series. As I develop a project, I keep coming back to it, making multiple interpretations of the same scene using a variety of materials and techniques. The process has the feeling of regrouping and forming itself into new and different versions of the original concept.
