My first introduction to art came as a young girl sketching Eastern Point Lighthouse in Gloucester, Massachusetts, with my Dad.
Although art was my favorite subject in high school, I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in horticulture and worked in that field for 15 years.
But the heart never forgets its first love, so I picked up a brush again and started painting watercolor landscapes of Cape Cod, where I have lived since 1986. I also travel off-Cape to paint, and have tried my hand at colored pencil and acrylics.
Today, I am an oil painter focusing on Cape Cod seascapes and landscapes.
My summers are full of Cape Cod art shows, exhibits of my oil paintings, special events, benefits, and permanent gallery showings.
