My work is an experiment in painting with materials, tools, surfaces, shapes, and color.


Born in Maryland, raised in Rockville and Washington D.C., I moved to Daytona Beach, Florida back in the '70's to enjoy the  beautiful tropical beach atmosphere. With the white powder sand of the "World's Most Famous Beach' close by, this tourist destination became my home.
My love of drawing, color, and making things with my hands led me to paint. Starting something new, the journey and exploration of what is possible inspired me to continue to pursue this life of making art.
I started making and exhibiting nature inspired watercolors in 1986 at juried outdoor art festivals and museum shows. With the help of my husband, Rob, we exhibited my paintings successfully at juried art shows for many years. I won some awesome awards, met some amazing artists as well as collectors of my art.
I continue to work in my studio, create new work, and exhibit my work in my online galleries.  My inspiration comes from the pleasure of experimentation with the possibilities of making marks with paint.
