 Over my career I have worked as a successful freelance illustrator, fine artist, and teacher. I ran my own art studio for years and taught a few painting classes at Western Connecticut State University. I also taught computer classes and worked for Apple.

 

My work has been published in several magazines, books, and even on puzzles. I have exhibited in art shows and galleries, where I've sold to private and institutional collectors. 

 

I studied fine art, graphic design, and illustration  at Oswego State University, and Western Connecticut State University where I received my BA and MFA in art from WCSU.

 

 My creative style has been one of a realistic, colorful blend reminiscent of the traditional art of the “Golden age of Illustration”. My subject matter usually includes figures and landscapes. With a creative philosophy that brings out  my feminine personality, love of bright colors and desire to create exciting compositions. I enjoy watercolor, figure drawing with charcoal, pastel, and oil painting in an impressionistic style. I also love to go painting "en plein air" all around New England and painting large murals. I recently started teaching art again and I love it! Can't wait to see what is next for me!
