About the Artist

I was originally from Albany, NY before moving to the beautiful 'Treasure Coast' area of Florida in 1983. I began painting in 2009 and consider myself an emerging artist using watercolors as my media of choice and enjoy working in my home studio every chance I get. I love surrounding myself with family, friends, nature and harmony and I am grateful for all blessings big and small.

Artist's Statement

There is nothing more rewarding than to bring joy and beauty to others through a work of art that one has created.
