I take my inspiration from life. I am known for my sensitive pastel portraits of children which I have been creating for 30 years. I approach my studies of animals with that same gentle passion.
My education has been lifelong beginning with lessons from local artists to studying at Moore College of Art and Monmouth University where I earned my BFA. I have also studied with the gifted artist Judith Martin and Atlanta Portrait Painter Thomas Nash. I feel strongly that growing as an artist is a lifelong process. And I am grateful to the many parents and grandparents that have seen in me a portrait painter. I currently reside in Monmouth County, New Jersey and work throughout the Northeast.
