 I find leading a balanced life challenging. Nature is the best medicine for me.  When I am outside, I breathe the air, feel the sun and am totally in the moment. My landscapes recapture those feelings of harmony and peace and are gentle reminders to take time for yourself.  Glowing light, rich color and texture invite you into places where you can pause, take a deep breath and savor the moment. 


Favorite places of inspiration include the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the New Jersey Shore, the Brandywine River Valley, Hudson, New York and Maine or anyplace that can be seen from my kayak or while hiking.


 Pastel is my medium and I have been working with it for over 30 years. I love its immediacy, and vibrant color. 


I have raised three amazing humans, am nuts about two grandchildren and maintain good relationships with all my nine siblings. My husband of 40 years is still my best friend. Over the years I have worked in the counseling/social work and arts administration fields. Family has always been my priority. 

I paint at my studio, Aston Mills Arts, outside of Philadelphia and am open by appointment throughout the year.
