Biography


 







I can’t remember a time when I did not make art.  I have always found joy in those moments when all track of time is lost and mind and hand move seemingly as one.If life informs art, it was my years in nursing that honed my ability to read hidden stories in faces full of character and, consequently, fueled my desire to share these vignettes in paint.  I move easily from pencil and watercolors, which lend themselves to realism, to pastel and oil, which showcase my love of impressionism.  I believe drawing skills are critical for all media and years of working from live models have perfected my draftsmanship. Given an accurate rendering it is my creative choice of colors along with both light and shadow that allows my subject to reveal its message. I paint in a restored 1926 cottage in downtown Melbourne, Florida and enjoy teaching as well.  Currently I have been focusing my attention on developing  smaller, dramatic, and affordable works that I will be promoting on this site only for direct purchase. Check back with me for new developments.As a lifelong boater and traveller I have found myself on the water or outside for stretches at a time.   This has opened up the possibilities in subject matter.   The portability of watercolors and pencils allowed me to  immerse myself in studies of marine scenes, beaches and water vessels.
