I am inspired by nature. I usually take note of the animals and birds that are passing by my window. I create pet portraits using pastels and watercolors. Monoprints are made with a handmade jell plate using beautiful Florida  weeds, flowers  and other assorted materials. I create abstract paintings using collaged materials of previous paintings, multiple colored papers, and drawings.

I usually sit down to paint daily but at different times of the day, with different light and different moods.

Sometimes, I paint for hours without creating something I like and sometimes it flows after minutes. 

I love to see my creations in other people houses and in my own. I am grateful for my gift of color and creating beautiful things. I hope that you enjoy them as well.

I had taken art classes in jewelry making, weaving, drawing, painting over the years but had never stuck with anything.

January 2002, I decided that it was time and sought out an art teacher in Princeton, NJ.  

I would work with her every couple of weeks.

It was in equal parts exciting and humbling. After a few months I moved on to adult education, art camps and on line courses. I had my first art studio in a refurbished barn in Central NJ. I loved being surrounded by nature. Often deer, turkeys and fox would walk by the window. I was there for ten years and recently moved to the west coast of Florida. 

My  new art studio is surrounded by a pond that is home to herons, ibis, sand hill cranes, egrets, turtles, squirrels and little grass frogs.

I sit in my art space, listening to Gary Stadler's melodious faery albums on Spotify and I create.

I use a combination of materials and techniques including:

Pen and ink

Pastels, Water color crayons, Acrylics 

Collage, Jell plate Mono printing 

Watercolor pencils, Artist pens

Yupo paper, Strathmore paper, Bristol board, Printmaking paper

Cotton clothing, Jacquard fabric paints
