Nature is my subject matter, whether I am painting a landscape, still life, or floral. I prefer painting from life, but find that my best work is a combination of close observation, emotion, imagination, and visual memory. I work in the studio or en plein air, and take inspiration from the many parks, land preserves, and farms of the Hudson Valley and nearby Connecticut.
My primary medium is pastel, but I also work in oils, acrylics, and watercolors. My paintings have been shown at the National Arts Club in NYC, the Gallery at Muscoot, Art Walk Ridgefield, Kent Art Association, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, the Putnam Arts Council, the WPA Gallery at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, and other local venues. I am a member of the Pastel Society of America, the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, and the Lower Hudson Valley Plein Air Painters.
