My art develops from images emerging during the painting process. I may start by loosely sketching in natural forms, but once I begin painting, I rely on intuition, imagination and memory to create a mood or an impression of time or place. I apply paint quickly and freely, exploring color, shape, texture and mark. My interest is in the excitement of motion and discovery and of creating something new and unique.
I was born in Montreal, grew up in Connecticut, and moved to Florida in 1997. I have a degree in Art Education from Southern Connecticut State University and have studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia. After working for a short period illustrating children's educational materials, I returned to fine art as my main focus. I have participated in many exhibitions and am represented in private and public collections including Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University. I am a Signature Member of the National Association of Women Artists and the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
