Artist Holding a Paintbrush

ARTIST PROFILE

As an artistic professional, I’m always looking for the next visual experience.  I've been fully devoted to the visual arts in the commercial sense for the past 40 years having had an award-winning career in Boston, MA. I worked for 20yrs as an art director/designer working with Fortune 100 companies; another 20 owning and operating my own boutique design studio. . . and now — I'm finally stepping into the fine arts. 

 

My experience includes a broad range of media, but my current preference is oil on canvas. I'm extremely proud to announce that I've recently become a juried member of the Oil Painters of America and a new member of the American Society of Marine Artists. 

 

Since moving to the coast of Rhode Island, my inspiration comes from big skies and vast seas. I find the horizon holds a wealth of both drama and peace. For now, I'm still exploring and finding my voice. I hope you'll follow me in my journey!
