I am a self-taught artist, originally from a small town in New York. Since I was very young, I have been drawing and painting in acrylics and oils.
My husband and I had a wood shop where we made pull toys and carousel horses from exotic woods, gaining some notoriety by exhibiting in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as the Burchfield Center and other venues in Western New York.
I now live in Ocala. Sunscapes, waterscapes, fish, mammals, and fantasy creatures have been my inspiration. Horses have always been in my life, so I have started a new series of these magnificent creatures.
Fluid acrylics and resin art have been obsessions the last three years. These have become the inspiration for the backgrounds of my realistic paintings, creating what I describe as "Organic Art." Many of these pieces have gold leafing, crystals, or glitter incorporated in them.
Some of these pieces function as coasters, clocks, and turntables. I'm hoping this art form is loved by others as much as I love creating it.
I give lessons in acrylic painting and fluid art.
