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.
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.
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.
