About the Artist

I received my BA in Fine Arts from the State University College at Buffalo. I began studying art at Penn State University and finished my degree at SUNYCAB. I was most interested in Art History and Painting with Oils. I gave up painting soon after college to pursue a career in teaching ballet. In 2010 I decided to take up painting but mainly as a hobby. My hobby has become a passion which now has me painting daily. I paint with oils but continue teaching ballet which makes me look forward to each tomorrow. Many of my paintings are in private homes in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Texas, Florida, California, New Mexico, Michigan, Kansas, the Bahamas and Stockholm, Sweden.

I am a contemporary landscape and seascape artist. I work on several paintings simultaneously for a few hours each day. I take pictures everywhere I go, print them out and turn them into my paintings. If what I see and how I communicate is enjoyed by many people then I have accomplished what I set out to do.
