For me each painting represents a visual diary. Whether traveling or taking a daily walk around my property, I strive to capture the pure essence of my subject by using light, luminous color and brushstrokes to suggest form and mass. I'm inspired by the beauty of nature and the written word. You'll often find poetry, song lyrics or newspaper headlines scattered throughout my paintings. This poetic realistic approach helps my viewers connect and relate in a very personal way. Every picture tells a story. Just ask me!

She has received several 1st place prizes in the field of lithography as well as painting. Her most recent award was 1st place at the Bucks County Gallery’s Local Color Plein Air festival.
