Biography


Forty years ago I began to study and paint seriously.  After experimenting with various mediums, I fell in love with the challenge of watercolor.  Today, painting realism in an impressionistic way drives me to capture my subjects on location.  My love for the outdoors inspired me to become a plein air painter.  The beauty of nature continually provides me with an array of subject matter. 
 
Some of the leading artists I have studied with include Lucille Geiser, Tony Couch, Judy Wagner, Zoltan Szabo, Nita Engle and Betty L. Schlemm.
 
I am a native New Yorker who settled in Sarasota with my husband seeking a more laid back sunny lifestyle after many years of city life and snow.  My paintings are regularly featured in group, invitational and solo exhibitions throughout the West Coast of Florida and New Jersey.  My work can most often be seen at The Dancing Crane Gallery in Bradenton, FL, and The Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury, NJ.  The recipient of many awards, I am an active member of Art Center Manatee, Venice Art Center, Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society and Women Contemporary Artists.     
 
My goal is to provide the opportunity for anyone to own original artwork.  This is reflected in my prices.
