Hi there! Hope you are enjoying visiting my galleries and thanks for stopping by! Here's some information about me and my journey as an artist. My fascination with creating art began as a child at the age of five, drawing with oil pastels and painting with acrylics. I still recall the great fun I had playing with paint at the easel in kindergarten, just wanting that opportunity to go on forever. Thankfully I have never lost the thrill of having a paint brush in my hand. I took art classes throughout elementary and high school, and continued with classes in drawing, painting and photography at the college level (Boston University, Arcadia University and LaSalle University). In my thirties, I began painting more frequently with oil and experimenting with different styles, including impressionism and nonfigurative contemporary abstract. I am particularly enamored with expressing through the use of glorious vibrant color in my paintings and photographs. I very much like to convey the peace and beauty I find in the world, strong emotions of joy and love, as well as a sense of wonder, mystery, magic and the divine. I find each time I work I take a spontaneous journey into the unknown. Every time I pick up a brush, palette knife or shoot photos with my camera, I experiment with the power and relationships of color, line and form. I feel very fortunate to be an artist because of the pleasure and excitement I get to experience from this process of continual rediscovery. Enjoy your trip through my galleries. Perhaps you will find something you or someone you know can use. If you like, share on social media also - I would appreciate the additional exposure particularly since I am relatively new to online exhibition. Feel free to come back soon to see my new pieces. Have a wonderful day!!
