In my artwork, I aim to depict the beauty I see in everyday scenes.  
I respond to the way natural light transforms ordinary objects.  Dappled sunlight on a red stop sign, or a bright green garbage truck rolling down the street at dusk are the things that catch my eye. 
My interpretation of these moments usually involves deliberate brushwork, strong light and dark patterns, and bold color.  
As I explore abstraction, I am working to simplify compositions and focus on the light and color interactions. 

I attended Syracuse University School of Visual and Performing Arts.
  I teach Paint Nights at The Milton Art Center, where I am a member of the Board of Directors.  I am a substitute art teacher in the Milton Academy Lower School, and a member of the South Shore Art Center, The North River Arts Society and an Exhibiting Artist Member at The Nantucket Artists Association.  I live in Milton, MA with my husband and four children, and spend summers on Nantucket.
