Biography



 
The thread of art has run through my life ever since I can remember, continuing to evolve through all the changes in my life. After receiving a BA in Art from Rutgers University, I continued studies at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, and at workshops, including a short but enlightening one with Henry Hensche in Provincetown, MA. While working in graphic arts, including my own small business, and raising a family, I have continued to draw and paint on my own. I was honored to receive a Best in Show Award and Solo Exhibition from a Bergen County show in 2010, which has encouraged me greatly along this path. I am also very happy to have discovered online communities, which make me feel more connected to the art world and to other people who care deeply about making art. This has inspired me to paint more regularly, putting me back in touch with that thread that runs through the deepest part of me. Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share some of the work created on this journey. My work is loosely rendered and naturalistic in approach with a strong focus on the effects of light on color and the living form. On the intersection of light, life, and medium. I see each painting as an exploration, a process that takes me beyond myself to a sometimes surprising result. Visible brushstrokes come together into something real. The process becomes the most important thing, and the end result is a product of that intuitive process. I find nothing compares with the joy of bringing a new image to life from a blank canvas.
