I grew up in a household surrounded by art: My father’s award-winning pen and ink drawings, my mother’s garden that sang with color, and my sister’s music. I fell in love with painting in oils and it’s been non-stop ever since. I find great joy in studying a flower close up and trying to capture its essence on canvas. Likewise, I love painting the ocean and marshes, the beaches, flats and clam beds of Cape Cod where my partner, Bob Cary, and I have a second home, and the Jersey shore which has been a part of who I am since birth. More than representations of beautiful blossoms, beaches and seascapes, however, I feel my subject matter is mood translated by light and color. I welcome visitors to step into my world and see it through my eyes—through my spirit.
