Biography


 
I have always been interested in Art.  I started my art education with classes and workshops taught by local artists such as  Sean Beavers, Michael Chesley Johnson and Stan Moeller. Eventually, I earned my Certificate in Fine Art from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. Today, I continue my educational journey by taking a little bit of something from many, different, well known artists, including David Leffel, Jeffrey Watts, Rose Frantzen, Robert Liberace, and Michelle Dunaway.

I paint landscapes (mostly en plein air), trying to capture not only the light and color, but also the mood and energy of the scene. With my still lifes I try to evoke emotion in the viewer.

I am a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists, the New Hampshire Art Association, and the North Shore Arts Association.  I am a member of the Newburyport Art Association, the Andover Guild, and [...]
