Back To Artist Listing
I specialize in portraiture, but enjoy many artistic subjects and media.
Early in 2019 I finished a 14-painting oil portrait series for the Jefferson Valley Mall. In the fall of 2019, I had a two-month, one-woman show in Annapolis, MD.
My work has appeared recently in Garrison, Croton Falls, Chappaqua, Peekskill and Ossining, and virtually through the Tompkins Corners Cultural Center. Reflecting on the pandemic, I was one of many local writers, artists, and other creative types who came together for a joint project, The Arc of the Viral Universe, organized by Carla Rae Johnson. In both 2022 and 2023, had solo shows at“Who’s Cooking?” In Croton Falls. I was included in “Unsung Heroes,” at the Hidden Treasures Gallery at the Palisades Mall in June and July, 2022. In December of 2022 and early 2023, I was in a group show at the Field Library in Peekskill.
I love to share the joys of drawing and painting. I’ve offered workshops at the Your Corner Artist studio, at the Mohegan Lake Colony, and this spring I taught for the Cedar Lane Art Center in Ossining, and at the Garrison Art Center.
My art education includes BfA studies at the University of Michigan and additional art classes at Cornell University, the Corcoran School of Art, and the School of Visual Arts. I have studied with many notable artists, including master pastellist Daniel Greene and ARC life master Robert Liberace. I believe in life-long learning, and continue to keep my own knowledge fresh while teaching others.
You can read more about my background on my website; I’ve been drawing and painting since childhood, when many of my first efforts were helped along by my supportive family.
