Welcome to my website! I am delighted to share my paintings with you. Please visit my Florals Gallery, my Landscapes Gallery, and my Still Lifes Gallery.My paintings are currently on view at the Winding Way Studio and Gallery at 6 North Main Street in Rockland, ME.
I was born and raised in Boston. Growing up in the city, I was always drawn to patches of green space, trees, and flowers. When I settled in Rockland, Maine, several years ago, I felt overwhelmed by the beauty of the coastal area.
I have been painting in watercolor for fifteen years, and in colored pencil and oils for about five years. I studied with Lynda Lyle Tate in Germantown, Tennessee, Deborah Ellis and Michael Platt in Alexandria, Virginia, and Angela Anderson and Holly Smith in Rockland. I cherish their support, and the encouragement and critiques of many good friends.
Flowers and other growing things are my passion, but the rocky seacoast, the ever-changing ocean, and the astonishingly clear sunlight in mid-coast Maine have drawn my interest to land- and seascapes. I recently started showing my work in public. I was delighted to have won prizes at the 2007 Union Fair and in the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Lobster Festival Merchants Row Art Contest. I have shown my work in the First Light Gallery in Belfast, Maine, and The Landing Gallery in Woodbury, New York. I have also exhibited my work at the Bangor Savings Bank in Camden, Maine, and the Bookends Deli in Rockland, Maine. A selection of my paintings and drawings can be found on the Gallery pages on this website. Some original works are available for sale on the Contact Page, as well as prints and notecards. Thank you for visiting!
