About me

Occupation artist, teacher and writer
Introduction As a child, I spent summers by the sea on Fire Island and in the mountains of Pennsylvania. In my twenties I lived in the Southwest and painted the incredible vistas of sky with dusty pink-colored mountains and silver rivers running through the landscape. I accompanied my husband, an archaeologist, as he traveled through New Mexico and Arizona visiting ancient ruins. At present, I have a studio near the Hudson River and teach at The Art School at Old Church in Demarest, New Jersey. The quality of light in the Hudson Valley is soft, at times luminescent. Nature and the delicate balance of human interface with the environment are threaded throughout my art. Find more about my paintings and ebooks at Email me at
