DescriptionLandscapes, observed and conceptual, are the subject of my most recent work. Recollections of my life and travels make my paintings personal and significant. Observers often relate to my work in a personal way as they too are reminded of a meaningful place and time in their own lives. Drawing and painting have long been my means of artistic expression. Watercolor lends itself to the flow of the unexpected. Drawing allows me to refine the images I choose to explore. Interpretive color, thoughtful composition and imagined scenes of the natural world combine to create a sense of mood and mystery.
About this Artist
At the age of 17 I enrolled at Buffalo State College to begin my studies in Art Education. I had the privilege and honor of teaching art to high school students for over 35 years. I am proud to say many of my students went on to study in an art-related field. Here in Chautauqua, I’ve made many meaningful connections and friendships through teaching painting for over 25 years in the Special Studies program. Living in Buffalo and being a member of the Buffalo Society of Artists, one of the oldest continuing Artist’s Associations in the country, I had relationships with some of the most gifted artists in Western NY. I was inspired by them each and every day. I’ve always felt gratified to have a foot in both worlds: proud of my work as an educator and blessed as an artist.View Full Artist Bio
