I am a self-taught artist learning by painting and observing art every day. While primarily working with the sights that surround me, I am also grateful to live in a time where I can be inspired by hundreds of artists virtually.  I gain new skills with every painting and feel an incredible sense of accomplishment that keeps me looking forward to the next piece.


Having painted as a hobby for 25 years, I am now fully devoted to my art and concentrating on realism still life acrylic paintings. As much as I love getting into the quiet details of realism I occasionally can be found "letting loose" with abstracts and florals.  Throughout the many styles the common thread of my art is using color to create paintings that feel fresh and modern.

I have lived in beautiful New England all of my life. When I am not painting, I enjoy the endless "do it yourself" projects of decorating the home I share with my husband.

 “ “Reflections” takes the classic still life and turns it on its head by placing glistening objects in front of an enchanting flower print, which is abstracted through a glass goblet and reflected in a vintage pitcher. The details are subtle, but masterful: the closer you observe, the more they reveal themselves.”
