In my artwork, I aim to depict the beauty I see in everyday scenes. More than the actual objects, I respond to the way natural light transforms them. The simple beauty in the sunlight pattern on a stop sign, or a garbage truck rolling down the street at dusk are the things that catch my eye and dictate a paintings subject. My interpretation of these moments usually involves deliberate brushwork and punched up color. As I explore abstraction, I am driven by paring down the details of these moments, and focusing on the 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. 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 was a Gallery Artist at The Nantucket Artists Association. I live in Milton, MA with my husband and four children.
