I have been painting for all of my adult life. My education has come through master artists and mentors. By day, I am an administrator at a university. I have worked in marketing and finance for many years. By night and on weekends, I paint. Painting is play – it is good for the soul. Enjoy!

Education: Babson College, MBA; University of Toledo, BSBA

Art Education: Toledo Museum of Art School, Decordova Museum School, Kendall Center for the Arts
Artists I have studied with: Walter Chapman, George Shedd, Andrew Kusmin, Paul George, Nancy Colella


I love spending time in Boston, on Cape Cod and in Southern Florida. Many of the paintings you see are places that I am so familiar with – they are the places that I belong. My work is continually evolving. For many years, I worked solely in watercolor and loved the loose fluidity of the paint and the challenge of the experience. For the past several years, I have been working in oils, enjoying the texture and the richness of color.
