For 40 years I have been painting and making art. After earning a BFA in painting from the University of Michigan, I moved to New York City where I continued my studies, taking classes at the NY Academy of Figurative Art, The Art Students League, and the School of Visual Arts. During this time I sold work through my business, “Artwork For Public Spaces”, making commissioned pieces for restaurants, nightclubs, and neighborhood billboards in Manhattan. Later, while continuing to paint, I became an art educator and taught at Winston Prep School for 22 years, both in New York City and in Whippany, NJ. I have an ongoing series of female heroes that feature large-scale oil portraits of legendary women artists. In 2021 I had a solo show titled “Heartworn Places” at Montclair State University’s LAB studio. The series was also a part of the BID Windows show in Montclair, NJ. This featured oil paintings of domestic objects and explored their unexpected beauty in our lives. I am involved with Studio Montclair in helping to install and prepare shows, as well as contributing to them. I am currently a full time painter, and can be found at work in my studio everyday. I also produce live paintings for The Story Salon in Montclair, NJ.
