I’m painting what I love; what grabs my attention and makes me pause. Mornings and evenings are particularly inspirational because colors can be intensified, and light can make the ordinary interesting. Boats, whether for work or play, merge with the seascape. And coastal trees stand out like resolute figures, and I appreciate their determination.
In the waterworks, I want to convey the sensation of water, light, and motion. I want to depict a time of day, a sensation, and a moment.
I grew up on the shore in Buzzard’s Bay, MA, and still spend as much time there as possible. I live outside Providence, RI, with my husband, two boys, four cats and one sweet dog. My work is in collections around the country and overseas. I have a BFA (UMASS, Amherst) and MFA (University of New York, Albany), and also studied at the Museum School, Boston, and the Academie Brugge, Belgium.
