You can find me painting on local street corners of Boston in good weather or in my studio during colder weather. What interests me most about plein air painting is how sunlight breaks up form when it falls on an object . When working in this manner time is of the essence. I must return to the outdoor location at the same time, each day for the short period of time when the sun and shadows are at the same angle and position. My choice of subject matter, such as old stores,buildings, Laundromats and antique cars pays homage to a disappearing landscape. With my portraits and old photograph derived works, I am hoping to also portray an intimate moment in time. It is my hope that with these paintings I am able to celebrate these people and these landmarks.
I have been painting in oils for many years and hold a BFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art. My work has been exhibited locally and can be found in collections around the United States.
I live in South Boston with my husband and children. 'Mrs. Putnam' teaches art part-time at the South Boston Catholic Academy where she is able to share her enthusiasm for all creative pursuits with her students.
