I am inspired by florals and landscapes set in the unique light of Cape Cod, awestruck by the architecture and movement of the human form, haunted by the silence of old houses and empty spaces, and intrigued by the beauty in everyday objects. My desire is to communicate curiosity and honesty through my work so that my audience finds something surprising and engaging in what they see.
I studied art in the 70s and 80s – attended the University of Houston for Architecture, then Fine Arts, completing a BFA. I studied at MassArt in Boston for my MFA in Figurative Painting and was accepted to the Newhouse School at Syracuse University where I studied Communications Design.
After many years of leaving my artwork behind, the past few years have brought me back to a regular practice, and I am blessed to live and work here on Cape Cod, where the rich creative culture surrounds me and offers a caring and supportive group of artists.
I am a juried member of the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, and the National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society, as well as the Cape Cod Art Center, and the Guild of Harwich Artists. Other professional memberships include the Copley Society of Art, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Chatham Creative Arts Center, the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, and the Provincetown Art Association & Museum.
My work has been featured in exhibits presented by the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society, American Women Artists, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and the Cape Cod Art Center. I am represented on Cape Cod by The Art Gallery of the Guild of Harwich Artists. I also invite you to visit my home studio and gallery in Harwich, by appointment.
