Since I was a young girl, folks told me I was an artist. I excelled in art classes and won a National Scholastic Art Award in high school. I studied ‘commercial art’ for two years in college, married and began a family, and later completed a degree in Art Education. I was blessed to teach elementary/middle school art in Catholic schools, retiring from St. Lawrence School in 2018. I look forward to exploring my own artmaking again.
I love art made by kids with its energy and focus on color, line, and shape. I’ve been influenced by the work of the post-Impressionists and employ some abstraction in my own work. I’m seduced by color, but I am also drawn to line. Current themes I’d like to explore are pastoral landscapes, nature, and faces. I’m primarily a painter but enjoy most mediums. Printmaking is on my ‘to-do’ list!
