Life long painter, really. Love color. My palette looks like a buffet of sweets and candies. Being enveloped in an environment and echoing something about it as a painted surface is what Speaks best for me. It is my first language. The crisp unblurred brushstrokes of my work conveys the tempo of the process.
I have lived in Nyc, Rome Italy, Berlin Germany and now am back to my native Rockport, MA. My art education began when I was about 9 going out with adult painting groups during the heyday of plein air painting in the 1970s. Later I went to Rhode Island School of Design, earning a BFA in painting and a Masters in Art Teaching.
