I am a better friend, mother, wife and daughter if I carve out time to nurture myself. Being in nature is that time for me. Outside I am totally in the moment and able to leave the rest of the world behind. When I return, I’m ready to be with people and to pick up the “TO DO LIST. Life is a balancing act. Energy needed to care of business and others must be balanced with energy we need to take care of ourselves.
My landscapes are reminders to take time for yourself and do what you love. Glowing light and vivid color invite you to stand still, take a deep breath savor the moment. Favorite places of inspiration include the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the New Jersey Shore, the Brandywine River Valley, Hudson, New York and Maine or anyplace that can be seen from my kayak or while hiking.
Pastel is my medium and I have been working with it for over 30 years. I love the immediacy and vibrant color that pastel provides.
After raising my family and leaving a position in arts administration, I am pursuing my passion for pastels full time. Now living in Rose Valley PA with my husband, I paint at Aston Mills Arts in Aston PA where I am open by appointment throughout the year.. You can also reach me through this website by clicking
