I am an oil and watercolor painter living in the Connecticut River Valley. My studio is in Enfield,NH.  I attended Carleton College where I took many studio arts classes.  During college I spent one summer working as an illustrator for the US Forest Service in Monongahela National Forest. I went on to receive my doctorate in clinical psychology, which was my profession.  I returned to painting more actively 23 years ago and am currently painting full time. I have taken watercolor classes from Joe Mayer and Marge Laurie and oil classes from Paul Leveille, Fred Hines, Aline Ordman, and David Leffel. In 2001 I had an artist's residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT.

I taught “Psychology of the Arts and the Artist” at VCU and have given painting demonstrations at the Troy Arts Guild, the Schenectady Art Association, and the Bethlehem Art Association. I taught a watercolor class at the Capital District Arts Center in Troy, NY, painting classes for home-schooled children grades 2-11, and watercolor classes for seniors.  I have had many solo shows in Vermont and New York .  I had an oil of the Bog River accepted in the widely distributed Brooks calendar of 2003.

Some of my paintings can be seen at the Long River Gallery in White River Junction, Vermont and AVA Gallery.  I am currently a member of the Center for the Arts NH and AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH.

Artist Statement:

Watercolors and oils are my preferred mediums. I like to paint and draw a variety of everyday subject matter. Painting allows me to slow down and really contemplate a person, object or “nature”. I continue to explore and experiment with how to express visual qualities.

Light, color, and mood fascinate me.  I attempt to create an emotional connection, rather than strive for total realism.
