About Me

From childhood I have had a passion for "creating". And throughout my life that passion has taken on many different forms.

After graduating from Fordham University at Lincoln Center in New York City, I began a career as a Theatrical Costume Designer. I have spent 25, fulfilling and successful, years in the "business", designing costumes for a wide range of theatres and universities, throughout the United States.


However, the past years have brought about many wondrous and challenging life changes for me. And with those life changes has come the realization that the core of my creative passion lies in painting. And that that passion can no longer be satisfied with painting "just when I have the time".
And so with my marriage to a wonderful and supportive man, and the creation of a magnificent studio space, I can finally direct all my creative energy toward painting. A full resume, which includes details of the awards I have received, the organizations to which I belong, and info on past, present & future exhibitions can be see below.


My inspiration for my art comes from many places, but the driving force behind it seems to be the journey that my life has undertaken in recent years. My paintings will often reflect where I am in that journey or where I have recently been. I will admit, however, to doing the occasional piece "just for the fun of it".


In conclusion, I hope that my work can bring to all of you some of the joy that it has imparted to me over my lifetime. And if it should, by some chance, help you along in your life's journey, then I am most honored and pleased.
