Often, as I go about my daily life, I see glimpses of a landscape, or a still life, or hear a fragment of a poem or piece of music, and say, “There’s  a painting in that………a story waiting to be told, or a message waiting to be shared.”  
Thus, the impetus for my art is awakened.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, I have always loved the peaceful, the scenic, the idyllic.  In the chaos of living in a very large family, I often sought the solitude of the outdoors-----a walk in the woods, a babbling stream, a starry sky.  These elements that brought my calm to my soul, led me to a holy relationship with  a Wonderful Creator, who is the Source of my joy and happiness, and the Author of my creative gifts,  To that end, I feel an enormous responsibility to give back to the Creator, by sharing with the world, the wonderful insights He has given me.

My expression of choice is drawing, and my favorite idea are colored pencil and pen and ink.  My bread and butter in the economy of art is making signs in my studio in Belmont, as well as framings, and freelance commissions.  

I am a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, Christians in Visual Arts, The Wellsville Art Association, and local civic organizations.  I am also that founder and director of The Fountain Arts Center in Belmont, and have a passion for cultural awareness in our rural area.
