“Creation . . .the eyes are the windows of our souls.”

To observe nature and to listen, sharing the world with family, friends and all of God’s creatures is the true essence of life. I’ve enjoyed painting with acrylics during retirement for the last several years. I love to paint land and seascapes, flowers, animals and birds. My passion is to paint the sea in an attempt to capture it’s vitality!

I enjoy sharing my love of painting, especially with children. I volunteered for many years at Duke University Hospital in Durham, NC at the Eye Clinic for children where we did art therapy. In addition, I love gifting paintings of my families’ pets, children and special memories of places they’d lived or visited. Art is all about sharing . . . viewing, and reliving natural beauty!

I have been blessed with many talented teachers along the way both in NY and CT and now on the Cape. I have displayed my art both nationally and internationally, having received various awards.

I have served as the President of the Yarmouth Art Guild (YAG) for four years, am the organizer of the Summer Outdoor Tent Art Sales, am a member of the Cape Cod Art Center, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod and served as the V.P. of the (Dennis) Monday Painters, and a member of the Fine Arts League of Cary (NC).

May we all enjoy the fascinating world of art and it’s abundant treasures!

Blessings and Peace!
