I have always loved to draw.  I was the kid who spent every extra moment in high school in the art room with the other kids who loved art.  I went to Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and worked as a layout artist at Filene’s in Boston, the Hecht Co. in Washington DC and LIT Brothers in Philadelphia. Once married, I went back to school to become certified to teach art and had a very short career as an elementary art teacher in Corning.  My husband was transferred to Greenville Ohio where, in lieu of a job, I was a founding member of the Darke County Art Association where I worked with water colors, pen and ink and silk screening. Once I had my three kids my artwork faded into the background and it wasn’t until I moved to the lake and became involved in the Yates County Arts Center that I rekindled my always present love for all things art related.  I had never painted with oil before, but after taking a painting class in Atlanta with the artist Qiang Huang, I found that I loved that medium and have continued with oil ever since.  I don’t have any particular deep philosophical reason for painting what I do, I just love color, and light, and want to share my view of the beautiful things we have around us every day and mostly take for granted.
