"While attending The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Westport, I resigned my position as a Personnel Technician working within the County Executive's office in White Plains. I did massage for a local chiropractor and also privately for approximately two and a half years. At this time I took an art course in watercolor and I never stopped studying art or painting. I stopped doing massage and focused my energies on my art."
"I have shown my work in many juried shows
including the Putnam Arts Council, the Upstream Gallery in Dobbs
Ferry and the River Gallery in Irvington. I have participated for
many years in the Upstream Gallery's annual Small Works Exhibit
which is a juried show. I currently have one of my larger paintings
at River Gallery.
"I am currently studying with Jock MacRae at the Katonah Art Center where I regularly exhibit work in their shows."
"I paint because it's what I love to do. One of
my strongest points is color sense and my style is impressionistic
sometimes leaning toward the abstract. I am drawn to the works of
Nell Blaine and Paul Resika for this reason. I chose watercolor
because I love the way the paint moves and surprises often happen !
I have done many interesting and diverse things in my life, but have
never felt the fulfillment I get through painting."
