Painting takes the ideas that are unable to be bound by words and I re-create them in my own expression through paint, boards, and beeswax. My oils and occasional mixed media paintings are both whimsical and classical. I engage my surroundings and subjects to include the personalities of local farm animals, coastal beach scenes, landscapes, and the not to be forgotten depictions of SnowPeople, immortalizing iconic places and historical figures. Implementing all kinds of unconventional tools to create with, enhances the textures that give life to my paintings. It is my goal for the viewer to have a story unfold before them, invoking joy, a positive feeling, or to bring forward a memory that was tucked away in the back of their mind.
Passionate about painting throughout my life, my formal training began at RISD and Parsons. My greatest influence was painting on Monhegan Island Maine, with internationally known modern impressionist painter, Don Stone. I am forever learning, and continue to paint daily in the studio, and ‘en plein air.’ My work is shown in galleries, and online. Reproductions of my work are also carried in stores and museum shops along the East coast.
Notecards are the reproductions of my original paintings. From farm animals, landscapes and seascapes any image can be created into a notecard or a print.
My whimsical depictions of SnowPeople immortalize iconic places and historical figures. All in good ‘unmeltable’ fun!

Owing much of my inspiration to the vast countryside and farms that surround me where I live,
I still am most passionate about painting coastal and North.
For many years I have Plein Air painted in Maine. In particular Mohegan Island where Don Stone, one of my greatest mentors resided and Edward Lis who introduced me to painting the Island.
I show in numerous galleries and shows, and am involved in fundraisers throughout the area.
