I am a fine art seascape and portrait artist working primarily with oils on linen and copper.  I focus on MOOD in seascapes and EXPRESSION in my portraits as well as my total concentration on LIGHT in all of my work.  When it comes to painting on copper, the resulting paintings have a glow from within, unlike anything accomplished on canvas or board.  My seascapes and portraits as well as plein air paintings and murals (movable and permanent) are in homes and businesses throughout the US, Canada, and the UK.

n 2012 I moved to Florida.  Before that, while living in New Hampshire, I painted en plein air along the seacoasts of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine..  I exhibited in northern New England juried shows, one woman exhibits, and group exhibits. I have also had the great pleasure of creating art in Provence, Venice, Lubec, Campobello Island, Monhegan Island, Martha's Vineyard, and New Orleans.  I continue to seek out and paint interesting marine views along the Atlantic coast from Florida to Maine and exhibit in several juried art festivals in Florida as well as several galleries.. 

In the Fall of 2022, I returned to my first medium of choice in the '60's though the 90's, watercolors.  I enjoy "playing" with them as a break from studio work ... when I want to do artwork for fun outside of the studio.  I share them with you on my website.    

2019 was an exciting year!  I illustrated a children's book, "Cat Mandoo: The Feline Who Flew" by Alexis Kasden.  It is published and available online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Google Play, and Apple Books.  It has received the "LitPick Top Choice Book Review Reward" for a children's book with a FIVE STAR rating!  I am simply thrilled to be part of such a beautiful book and to have worked with such a delightful and clever children's book author!  

Artist Statement:

"I paint because I have always loved to paint and I paint seascapes and people because I have always been fascinated by both." 


I am currently represented by the Piper Gallery in Pompano Beach, FL.,  the Water Street Tavern Gallery in Lubec, ME, Sea Bell Gallery in Ogunquit, ME, and Pointe of View Fine Art Gallery on Mackinac Island in MI .
