University of Pennsylvania, A.B. History of Art. I have taken multiple courses over the years with various instructors, both at my home in Pennsylvania and in Nantucket and have exhibited in various places, mainly in Nantucket.
My life-long love has been oil painting of landscapes and occasional abstract works. Color has been my main motivator for all my work. Nantucket, its beauty, sky and water are a primary theme. My travels around the country and world have leant much inspiration. My years of travel with my husband in his single-engine plane allowed me to study the beauty of clouds, their shapes and colors - another favorite theme of my work.
The pandemic afforded me the opportunity to study acrylic painting on the internet. I took it up during the lockdown and have loved it. The freedom to experiment with color, shapes and composition has been inspiring. Learning a new technique has been very rewarding.
