My life long love of the out-of-doors gently guided me to becoming a painter of the natural world. When I choose a subject to paint, I seek out light and shadow. Sometimes the most mundane subject can become powerful when bathed in a particular light.

Many of my oil paintings were created au plein air or in combination with a photograph. The light can be so fleeting! My style has been described as tonal-impressionistic. My training was in the impressionist style. However, in my efforts to add an emotional aspect to my work, I will often borrow from the techniques used by the American Tonalists of a century ago.

Recently, I have been painting the human figure. My preference is to show the figure in a natural setting. My art subjects come from in and around the places I have lived and also from the places I have traveled.
My formal education was focused on my becoming an art educator. I have taught all art mediums in Connecticut schools for over 20 years.

Painting, however, has always been my first choice for personal expression. I have studied the works of painters past and present. I sought out instruction with those contemporary painters that I most admired, among them: Shawna Shane, Hollis Dunlop, and Christopher Zhang.

For five years, I was owner and operator of Ironic Art. I created hand-painted silk fabrics and furniture for the design industry. My hand-painted silk drapes and decorative pillows were once featured in Better Homes and Gardens.
