    Hi! I am a US artist working primarily in the east coast from Connecticut to Florida as well as in Canada and in the UK. My work is in a variety of media’s: acrylic, watercolor, oils, charcoal, and pastels. I paint on linen/silk, glass/marble, ceramic tiles, canvas and wood. I am a muralist and have worked for the Catholic Church. I lecture, do live art demos and teach art publicly and privately for all ages. I have done numerous store fronts, many art walls/fireplaces/columns in private homes. I have been President of many art clubs. I also enjoy photography and the computer. Part of my artwork includes commercial computer art, creating small advertisements and logos as requested. I have been recognized in the prestigious National Association of Professional Women 2013. I have been asked to be a Judge for the prestigious art show “An Occasion for the Arts" In Williamsburg, VA, held in Merchants Square in October 2013 and accepted.

    1985 received a BA degree in Fine Arts, a Computer Science degree, and a BS in Business Communications and partially completed a Master Degree in Business Administration and Finance by 1987.
