I have been enamored with art and its history since I can remember. I graduated in 1987 from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, then a private women's college. I am extremely fortunate to be living my dream as an artist; while owning my own Fine Art Academy & Gallery.
My works reflect my love for all that the Eastern Shore has to offer; color, light, and visual excitement. For a while I used exclusively the three primary colors and white. (CobaltBlue, Lemon Yellow, Quinacridone Rose, and Titanium White) I loved the challenge and excitement of mixing to create the effect and atmosphere I want to achieve. However, my most recent works are pushing my experimentation of color mixing even further. I have started using metallic and iridescent oil paints; with just one or two traditionally colored pigments. I have abandoned the traditional white by substituting silver as my light. I am combining a more abstract approach while integrating them with traditional landscape subjects.
I used to be more of a perfectionist and realistic painter, I feel that I have developed a greater appreciation of my life and my world as I mature. My work is more free and spontaneous than before; I daily enjoy the journey of the painting process.
As an ovarian cancer survivor, I have developed even more freedom with my painting style. I feel that my life has gone full circle and is ready for another loop around. Where my next path will take me is uncertain, but I am ready and very excited to keep learning and developing my passion and skills.
