I have lived and worked on both coasts and now call Montana home. In my studio under the “Big Sky” I am creating bold, showy floral pieces that burst onto the canvas and announce their glory. At the same time, my use of colored pencil allows me to reveal tiny details that communicate the fragile nature of each beautiful flower.
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts at the College of New Rochelle in New York and spent many years printmaking, painting and drawing in California. My art has been widely published: exhibited in galleries throughout the country, licensed as needlepoint designs, repeated on textiles and ceramics, note cards, posters and calendars which have been sold and sent all over the world.
I try to challenge the limitations of the canvas to give independence and a dramatic sense to each flower, capturing both its nature and its beauty. My work can be seen in the collections of many patrons.
My fondness for line and color has been extended in a series of colored pencil drawings that are a montage of printed images that I find visually interesting. These include topographical maps, architectural blueprints and elevations, ancient symbols, mechanical diagrams, historic architecture and symbols and even musical scores. Windows, doors and columns are my favorites, often with a gargoyle or two keeping watch.
