     A native of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, I began painting lessons as a child studying in Provincetown, Ma. with Henry Hensche as well as with visiting impressionist painters to his school. I received formal training at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts in Paris, France; The Art Institute Boston; and Boston University. Some teachers with whom I studied that influenced the development of my work in color and light were Lois Griffel at The Cape Cod School of Art, Wolf Kahn at the Santa Fe Institute of Fine Arts, Janet Fish in NYC. 

   My inspiration has always been ignited by the beauty of our natural world from the woods next to my childhood home that generously revealed her magic, to the ocean that surrounded me and, at an early age, began teaching me about introspection. These are the elements that captured me, and have held me in their glow of light, depth, reflection, keeping me aware of our interconnectedness, our oneness. My goal is to project the visual vibrations of energy, light, excitement and enthusiasm through my intuitive and colorful translations of beauty - to capture all this in a physical form that others can take home with them and enjoy. 

     Early in my career I concentrated on murals and trompe l’oeil painting, working with teenagers creating murals funded by local agencies and grants. I also worked as an art teacher for many years in public and private education. I now work full time in my studio. I also organize and facilitate “Artists Trips” regionally and internationally, taking small groups of painters to New Mexico and to Tuscany once a year.  My work has been collected across the country as well as in Europe, and is currently represented by Fountain Street Gallery, Boston, MA., by Gallery 37, Milford, DE, and Paula Estey Gallery in Newburyport, MA. Paintings have been exhibited in many group shows, solo shows, juried shows, in publications, and have received awards and commissions. I love to travel and have lived and worked in parts of Europe, the Middle East, Martha’s Vineyard, Ma., Cape Cod, Ma., Sarasota, Fl., Los Angeles, Ca., Deerfield, Ma., and Santa Fe, NM. I now live in Norfolk, Massachusetts with my husband, Ed.
