"For me art is the synthesis of the fleeting moments that a subject or image portrays. And with watercolor I have an avenue to express and interpret this through shape, value, and design. My hope is that the viewer enters personally into my painting, to find for themselves the story it conveys."

As an artist for over 30 years, I have been in many juried shows, and exhibitions. My beginnings in watercolor were with Eleanor Dragonette at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center of Staten Island and Ernest Chislow, a private instructor of drawing. I have attended classes at the Brooklyn Museum Art School and workshops with Tom Lynch, Janet Rogers, Joel Popadics, and Tony Couch (Who’s Who in American Art).

​I am currently a member of the Wet Paints Art Group of Sayville and Night Herons located on Long Island. My joy of painting leads me to teach others through the Suffolk BOCES Arts in Education Program and at local libraries. Private classes to adults and children are also available.
