Being a life-long resident of Massachusetts, I have lived the past 45 years in Plymouth, MA. There I raised 3 sons while working as chiropractic assistant and massage therapist.
After becoming interested in painting through a decorative painting class, I quickly moved on to watercolors, then oils. Taking a class when I could and painting every day has helped me to keep moving forward with my painting. Decorative painting has greatly influenced the style of realism found in my still life paintings. My work is highly detailed while rendering texture, light and color.
I am often inspired by family heirlooms and by my personal collections that I have searched out at antique shops and local yard sales. I am currently working on a series of still life oil paintings featuring these cherished possessions.
My love of flowers started at 8 years of age with a 4-H garden. The fascination of their fleeting beauty has led me to try to capture in my floral paintings the quickly changing joy of God's creation.
I enjoy painting outside, usually around historical Plymouth. Many of these Plymouth Scenes are available in prints and can be viewed on my website.
Having been one of the original founders of The Plymouth Center for the Arts, I volunteered as a board member for over 10 years, while being chairman of the gallery committee there. I am also an active member of the North River Art Assoc., Duxbury Art Assoc, Marion Art Assoc., a juried artist at the Cape Cod Art Assoc., and The Plymouth Center for the Arts, juried artist Russell Gallery, past vice president of The Bourne-Wareham Art Assoc., The Sandwich Art Alliance.
I teach oil painting at The Plymouth Center for the Arts and am available for demos and workshops. My paintings are held in many private collections throughout the United States, and Europe.
