Biography


I am a Florida contemporary impressionist who grew up in South Jersey by the seashore.  My mother encouraged my early interest in drawing and I was inspired by my uncle who was an accomplished oil painter. 
 
Art studies include classes at The Art Students League and Parsons School of Design in New York; Ringling School of Art in Sarasota as well as workshops with renowned plein air painters.  My inspirations consist of notable artists such as Kathie Odom, Richard Schmid and Colley Whisson.
 
I was hooked on plein air painting after a two-week stint at Monet’s gardens in Giverny.  For the past nine years I was Director of the Peace River Painters, a Southwest Florida plein air painting group which I developed. 
 
Upon retirement in 2010, I dove back into art and painting and actively participate in art events and community programs.  In 2017 and 2021 I was one of Florida’s Finest Ambassadors at the Forgotten Coast Plein Air Paint-Out in Franklin County, Florida.
