After earning a BFA in Graphic Design/Photography at MICA, I worked in TV Graphics & Ad agencies in Balto.MD, Los Angeles, CA & London, England.

Inspired by a collection of early family silhouettes, I began creating silhouette collages incorporating antique papers with my original ideas.
When creating an original, I hand cut a silhouette as a main subject and juxtapose it with relevant maps, stamps, antique ledgers & letters, beach collections, fossils, leaves, branches, wax seals etc.
I have created silhouette collages of many different subjects, including sailing ships, antique chairs, tables, dog breeds, cats, tea pots, pitchers, tureens, sea life, birds, butterflies, farm animals, horses, presidents & famous peoples silhouettes.

I have been creating, exhibiting & selling my original art around the world for nearly 30 years.

My work continues to evolve each year which is extremely rewarding.

Make your own wax seal

Kids participate in the Colonial custom of sealing wax. There are a large selection of seals to choose from and kids choose a design that appeals to them. They impress the seal into a puddle of hot wax, with their signature and date, and make a memento of the Fair. Antique seals, letters and large ledger are available to view.
