While taking black & white Photography in college I took a photo of these women on a winter day in New Haven, CT. I knew I had to paint them someday, and it was time. It takes me back to when women like my Mother would dress up and go into Hartford to shop for their families. I remember when she would take us along as well. She bought us Lemon...

It takes me back to when women like my Mother would dress up and go into Hartford to shop for their families. I remember when she would take us along as well. She bought us Lemon Ice at least once. I guess we behaved well that day!

“I have always considered myself a ‘fine artist’ first, even after over 33 years working in the graphic arts industry.  As a teenager I was able to take oil painting classes and by high school I was stretching large canvases to paint on with the help of my carpenter father.


Each time I paint I feel something special draws me to a scene, the light and shadows excite me and color adds another dimension as the art evolves. I love capturing beautiful, dynamic images with my camera or I-phone today to use as references.


I am primarily a landscape artist who finds herself gravitating to ‘waterscapes’ much of the time. My paintings are realistic and today I use oils primarily but over the past number of years I had developed a love for pastels due to the graphic quality of them and my love for drawing. With oils I prefer working on smooth surfaces including linen and aluminum which are as smooth as glass and force me to approach my paintings in a different way.


As an artist, I always hope that others will share in the beauty I have found as each painting includes a piece of me and my life's adventures.”
