Love being an artist! Oils and watercolor are my forte. Oils give me complete control when painting, especially with water and sky. My land and waterscapes and portraits are meticulous and bold. I work really well with light and contrast. My watercolors satisfy my need for freshness and spontaneity. This medium has opened up a more organic style of painting allowing more spontaneous effects. This back and forth works well in staying balanced and openness for new ideas.
My studies began with illustration, design and commercial art at Pace University, NY. Fine art, graphic art and web design at WCC, SUNY Westchester, NY. I’ve studied painting styles and technique with accomplished artist Ed Burke and portrait painting from renowned artist Andrew Lattimore. I have had many other private teachers and workshops along the way to now with continuous proliferation as my best teacher.
I’m a member of the Peekskill Arts Alliance of which I am a board member. My work has been shown at many venues in New York, some of them being: Howland Art Center, Katonah Museum, Garrison Art Center, Paramount Center for the Arts, Blue Door Gallery, Ceres Gallery and Skylight Gallery in Chelsea in NYC and I’ve been represented at Gallery 66 in Cold Spring.
My mission is to stay true to what I’m feeling as I paint and express it with boldness, intensity and light. My purpose is to listen to my inner, “Woman on Fire” and to forever remain true to myself.
