The Artist Says:

I am a watercolor painter, an acrylic painter of figure paintings and a mixed media artist.  My next solo show  at the Piermont Fine Arts Gallery, Piermont , NY will be 9/12- 9/29 2019.


Born in NJ, but a Rockland County, NY resident for more than forty years, I graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA,  and Masters degree in Art Education from the College New Rochelle. I have studied watercolor with Carolyn H. Pederson, NWS and have retired from teaching art in the Clarkstown School District after thirty-two years. My paintings  are in many private collections  all over the world and have been exhibited in juried shows in New York and New Jersey. Presently I am a member of ACWA, Salute to Women in the Arts, ACOR, and past president of Community Arts Association.  I am a signature member of Northeast Watercolor Society, and Audubon Artists.  In addition I am  a member of The Piermont Fine Arts Gallery, Piermont, NY.
My goal as an artist is to capture the beauty and serenity of a landscape, or a flower, or a figure.  I love the luminosity of color I can achieve with a watercolor wash, or the boldness I can achieve with acrylics..  For the past seven years Tuesday mornings have been spent at the Rockland Center for the Arts painting from various models, using Golden Fluid Acrylics.  I fell in love with drawing and painting the figure as an art major at Syracuse University.
