This is a little about me:
I grew up in Connecticut and have been creating art since I could hold a crayon. At age five, I remember going door to door selling drawings to neighbors. I was fortunate to have an excellent array of creative classes to attend during my high school years. Upon graduation, I placed my art aspirations on hold to pursue a business career. Finally, after a twenty year hiatus from art, I am delighted to be pursuing my artistic dreams in earnest.
I have a studio and residence on Lake Norman in Mooresville, NC with my husband Brian; who is also an artist. I make it a priority to paint every day.
The lake is a constant source of inspiration. I wake up very early to catch the sun as it rises over our cove. There is nothing more peaceful or moving than to be on the lake watching the sun come up. In minutes, the sky changes from the deepest dark blue to a riot of glorious colors. Clouds form irregular shapes and are highlighted by glints of sunlight. Every color of the rainbow is available, and the lake reflects it beautifully. Only sounds of mother nature are present. Being near water recharges my soul..
Creating art is an ongoing personal challenge. A flat, blank, white canvas is transformed into an image that has dimension, life, emotion and meaning. My distinct style of “less is more” permits the viewer to interpret the image through the filter of his/her own life experiences. Subject matter is everywhere; people, places and things I view through artist eyes. .
Once a year, I open my studio to the public so that art appreciators may get a “behind the scenes” peek at my process and see new original works.
My art has been acquired by collectors in the United Kingdom, Italy, Singapore, Mexico, Canada and of all around the United States. I have been published several times and exhibited in local, national and international shows.
When not creating art, I can be found at a museum or gallery soaking it in and learning by observation..
Over the past few years I have submitted art work to several juried shows and have been awarded various distinctions. If you would like to see more about this, you can find it HERE on my website. My resume and Statement are also available.
This is a little about this site:
Its here to show you my latest work and what I do on a day to day basis. I hope to cover some interesting things over time. I’ll be posting as often as possible, but I will say an artists life is a bit crazy at times. You’ll be able to see new things as I create them.
We also have newsletters where we can send you an email when a painting is completed or on a quarterly basis. Sign-up here.
