After a career teaching French and selling Real Estate, I discovered painting and it quickly became my passion. The process of turning a blank canvas into something beautiful and exciting is pure magic.
My paintings are representational but not realistic. They are about creating an image that radiates from the canvas, conveys strong feelings, and expresses the essence of my subjects.
Color is key. I love painting exotic birds and animals and capturing their expressions. I am drawn to extraordinary individuals, striking scenes, store window reflections, and people dancing, riding, and leaping in exciting ways.
My art has been called poetic and lyrical and I’ve been told that my animals seem to be smiling.
I have exhibited at Emerge Gallery (Saugerties), Byrdcliffe (Woodstock), ASK (Kingston) and my works can be seen adorning the walls of local businesses. I recently had a Solo Show at Sawyer Savings Bank. I also exhibit with West Side Arts Coalition in Manhattan.
Aside from painting, my other loves are gardening and decorating, which in their own ways allow me to play with form and color.
