I knew from a very young age that I was destined to be an artist. I followed my path and found an extremely fulﬁlling career in designing textiles. It took me places around the world to source and produce my work.I became expert at what I did and for over 30 years I perfected my craft. When it was time to re discover my love of ﬁne art, I was concerned as to who would I be? would I feel the same passion? The answer is yes! I now spend half the year in a magniﬁcent setting on the Pemaquid Peninsula in Maine. I have become involved in an energetic art community that gives me great pleasure.
I work in several media. Having graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Illustration, I am equally at home with graphite and pastel as well as oil. Although I attend ﬁgure classes at NY Art Students League, my time in Maine focuses on plein air painting. I incorporate my strength in design into what I see in the patterns of nature. Painting in plein air as I do , is challenging. I ﬁnd my inspiration all around me. The brightness of color, the stillness, the span the sweep of ﬁelds and the ever changing reﬂections I see on the ponds,rivers and streams.
My paintings are bold and fearless in my need to interpret my environment. The shadows and richness of the ever changing landscape. I learn something new constantly and that is what is so satisfying. I continually see changes in my work. I want to always feel that I am on the edge of something new.
I have been guest artist at Pemaquid Art Gallery 2013. Exhibited and sold there and River Arts Damariscotta Me, Boothbay region Art Gallery. Had solo exhibitions at Pemaquid Watershed Assoc. and Miles Memorial Hospital
