I am a lifelong secret artist but it wasn't until I retired from my corporate career that I gave full flight to my inner artist. I have studied and practiced wheel pottery, drawing, and painting. And finally, after all this time, I have settled on paint as my primary medium.
I am inspired by the natural world and its inhabitants - the seashore, the city, the mountains, shops in a village, people in their own private world in a cafe. I love the way trees carve out shapes in the landscape and buildings blend and clash with their surroundings. I love farms and tractors and animals and the human form in every variety.
Some days I wish I had taken the other path - Art School and formal training that would have set me on this path earlier. But here I am, having taken the very long road, learning every day, hoping never to stop learning. I hope you enjoy my work.
I have exhibited in many locations including Gallery Twist (formerly Gallery Blink), Cambridge Art Association, The Arlington Center for the Arts, Concord Art Association, Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, Cape Cod Art Association, Grace Chapel, Mass Audubon Habitat, and the Old Schwamb Mill.
I teach workshops on a variety of creative painting techniques in surrounding towns.
