I am passionate about art and teaching, and have had the privilege to combine both for most of my life. I grew up in Columbus Ohio, and received a Bachelor in Art Education from Ohio State University. I moved to Florida in 1981, and earned a Masters in art Education from Florida Atlantic University. I have had the opportunity to teach K-12 Visual Art since 1981 while experimenting with different media and themes to develop my own art. During the summer months I travel to Canada where I enjoy Plein Air watercolor painting in downtown Toronto, throughout Ontario, and New Brunswick. I have now expanded my work to include acrylics, oils, and mixed media. For me, the natural beauty and color in the landscape is the primary focus of my work. Hopefully through my paintings the viewers will be able to experience everyday places and spaces in a new light.
I am currently a member of the Delray Art League, Coral Springs Artist Guild, Women in the Visual Arts, Palm Beach Watercolor Society and the National Art Education Association.
My paintings have been exhibited in the following locations:
