Artist in Tuscany


When young I enjoyed drawing and painting. That love never faded, so I studied art in college. After graduation, I became a teacher of art and English. Teaching, marriage, raising children, and furthering my education happily consumed most of my time, but with retirement I found time again for my first love – creating art. I describe this time as “going to my happy place” because it relaxes me and provides an outlet for creativity.

Western Sunrise


I use oils, acrylics, watercolors, and mixed mediums. Using different mediums provides a variety of artistic expressions with each idea manifesting its own style and medium.

Positano on the Amalfi Coast


I often see the world around me as how it would look on my canvas. I am inspired by nature and by the old-world architecture as that found in Italy. I enjoy creating paintings that provide beauty and peacefulness for the viewer and myself.
