About Me

I am a self taught artist who began painting in 1976. I take inspiration from life and all it has to offer. A two time breast cancer survivor has taught me not to take things for granted and to see the beauty in everyday life. I live in RI with my dog and cat who have become a big part of my life. I have an adult daughter and two wonderful Grandchildren. For me, painting is like being on vacation without ever leaving the house.

I work primarily in oils and acrylics on artist canvas, though I have created murals and other specialty pieces for my wonderful clientele.  I am accepting custom commissions at this time. 

My work is sold online and is also shown in galleries throughout Southern New England. I have been thrilled to work with other artists, join in group shows, and even win some very kind accolades. It is always a joy to connect with other artists and art lovers. 

I  teach art lessons for adults in a small class environment. And I host Paint Nights once a month, for those who want to share a love of art and friendship in a more casual atmosphere. Feel free to contact me for further information.

My faithful companion and studio "guardian" Olivia!
