Having recently settled in New London, NH,
after six years spent in NJ
with my husband and growing daughters,
I continue to be most content
when working with focus at home.
I savor opportunities to be
absorbed in a project,
surprised by time's passage
and so satisified that
I have transferred an idea onto paper.
At 53, I'm largely self-taught as a watercolor artist.
With a BA in English/Fine Arts
from Colgate University and
MS in Environmental Studies
from Antioch University New England,
I have long considered
the meaning of place.
Local art teachers have introduced
new techniques and energy
into my practice.
I've been drawing tiny whimsical figures
in imaginatively rendered settings
From my earliest undertakings--
notecards, after-school projects, holiday gifts--
to my most recent maps,
my style has remained light-hearted.
