I am an impressionistic painter and my work has been shown all over the world! I was born in Boston and I have been painting for over forty years.

Late afternoon is my favorite time to paint! Whether I am on the beach or painting in my yard, capturing that golden light with colors that are enhanced by the warm sun is exciting! I love to dance when I paint -- I let the music touch my heart and create the magic that I feel in my soul. I get so excited about each and every painting!

My passion to create paintings that make people smile and feel love keeps me growing as a painter and discovering more of my art! Paintings have a universal language -- one that speaks to us from our hearts. When I see people smile, I know that I have created that magic! I see Everything as a painting.

I am working on a video series entitled, “Art Is For Everyone” that teaches people all different forms of art and how to find that creative genius in all of us. My new series “Coming Home” is a creative endeavor to produce paintings and giclees to honor our military who have served overseas. Proceeds from the sales of this series will benefit Disabled American Veterans.

I love to teach workshops and give painting demonstrations. Painting from life is the best way to paint.
