I hope that you will take your time and visit the media and subject categories shown above. Then I hope that you will visit my studio located in The Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The Torpedo Factory Art Center is open 59 hours a week, every day of the year (except for 5 holidays). The Factory hours are 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.* We also are open every Thursday until 9 p.m. The TFAC is FREE to the public. Visitors may go into the studios and observe, ask questions, and purchase original art.

This is a working-artist studio, not a shop. My days to work have changed. I now work Wednesdays thru Sundays from around noon til closing except for Thursdays when I am in 1-9. I may sometimes come in Monday or Tuesday afternoons and be closed Wednesday so please email or call to make sure that I am going to be in the studio if you are planning a trip specifically to see me. "I am willing to come in earlier or stay later for your convenience and I am happy to come in on a day that better fits your schedule. Please do not hesitate to call or email me for an appointment." ~ Betty

My regular days and core hours: Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays Noon to closing (6:00 unless 5:00 due to a rental event); Thursdays 1:00 - 9:00 (late hours)

Right now I have a special show up on one side of my studio titled Introspectve Retrospective "Oldies But Goodies". It consists of some self portrait sketches and oil paintings done when I first graduated from high school and started college, some done in my twenties while taking classes from Danni Dawson through the Art League. Many of the other pieces are work that I have had in my home for a while.

* NOTE: The Torpedo Factory will close earlier at 5pm when the building is rented for a private event. Inquire by calling the TFAC office at 703-838-4565 Ext. #1 or go to
