My life as an artist began in my early years spent in the Berkshires or north-western Connecticut where I was exposed to the natural beauty of the mountains and lakes. It was no surprise then that when I was introduced to the Adirondack mountains and lakes shorty after college, there was an instant affinity.
I received my degree in Fine Arts from the College of Mount Saint Vincent, an MA in Education from New York University, and an MA in Art Therapy from Marywood University. After enjoying the art of place and people as a designer, teacher and art therapist, I recently returned to the beautiful Adirondacks and to the art of watercolor painting.
In the developement of my artistic style, I have realized a renewed love of the organic lines and colors of nature. I am influenced by both the Asian spirit and Celtic spirit resulting in the presence of a symbolic spritual significance in my work, which at times is deliberate, but more often is later discovered.
My watercolor studio is located in Coreys on the Stony Creek Ponds.
