Art is my passion, and something that is always calling to me. Whether itís the play of light and color in nature, people interacting, traveling to new places, or the awe-inspiring beauty of a landscape that leaps out at me, I find inspiration everywhere. Sometimes itís just a brief moment that needs to be translated into ďartĒ, something captured and put on paper or canvas. I work with watercolor with its subtle movements of pigments in water, creating vibrant landscapes. I thoroughly enjoy making rich and bold images with acrylics. I love the excitement and challenges of experimenting in all mediums, but mostly simply enjoy painting with my heart.
Art has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, beginning with feeling the absolute magic of drawing on the blackboard in kindergarten. My grandfather was an artist who shared his love of drawing, painting, and sculpture with me. Later, I was fortunate to have studied at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, where I continued this journey. I have studied with many gifted teachers, and continue to share creating with outstanding painters. Originally from the New Jersey shore, I now live at the Delaware beaches where Iím drawn to the quiet beauty of nature. Expression, observation, experimentation, and a willingness to take risks are my guidelines today. I participate and show in a wide range of local and regional organizations and venues, and have been honored by many. My love of travel has allowed me to show or paint in Italy, France, Egypt, Austria, Turkey, and Peru. Painting and creating at any time is a joy.
