The Artist Says:

I've been drawn to nature since I was a young girl because of its palpable presence and visual beauty. Still, it took many years as an artist before I felt compelled to tackle my love for the land directly.The variety of locations, atmospheric effects, climate and season present such endless possibilities and challenges.  I expect to happily take the rest of my life pursuing and trying to capture what moves me about each subject that catches my eye and to paint it in a way  that I can share some of my love and excitement about the landscape with others.


ABOUT THE ARTISTI've been working professionally as an artist since the early 80's, first entering the world of art as a commercial artist and illustrator and gradually turned toward portraiture and fine art. Commissioned portraits of people, pets, and homes continue to hold a place in my work life, but increasingly, oil landscapes have become central to my body of work and have captured my heart and attention.

The variety of locations, atmospheric effects, changing seasons and climate present such endless possibilities that I can see this love of the landscape continuing to feed my senses and challenge my abilities as an artist for the rest of my life.I paint in oil en plein air (on location) as well as in my Hartsdale, NY, studio where I often finish a painting started on location but also paint new subjects using plein air sketches and photos I take with my beloved digital camera as reference.EXHIBITIONS  On-going: Images Gallery, Briarcliff Manor, NY; Flat Iron Gallery, Peekskill, NY  Majestic Hudson Invitational Show, Dec.
