"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a piece of scrap paper, from a passing shape, from a spider web."
Personal Statement :
Having grown up on the coast of Long Island in an artistic family, I was afforded many opportunities to explore my love of art. As a result, my interest in art has continued to be a significant part of my life. I am presently retired from a rewarding career as an art educator. Throughout my life I have been happily navigating through many types of mediums, and now find myself fascinated with the art of pastel painting. I also have a strong background in fiber arts and printmaking, which sharpens my focus on the natural shift of light, color and texture that nature provides. My surroundings inspire me and continually surprise me. With my pastels, I hope to preserve and share these special moments in time.
