I have been an artist since I was a little girl, at the feet of my father who was also an artist. Literally on the floor with his colored pencils when they got too small for his hands.

I have a BFA in painting from the Cooper Union which I am still proud of even though it was long ago.
I moved to Cape Cod three and a half years ago from the Hudson Valley in New York. I convinced my family to move to the Cape after our first vacation here five summers ago. I fell head over heels for the beauty of the beaches, the light, the flats, the tide pools, the little towns, the old houses, the fishing piers and boats.

I felt certain I could move here and paint Cape Cod landscapes and scenes, be a Cape artist and never run out of inspiration. So far so good.

My paintings are acrylic or oil on canvas and all made using my own photographs as reference, painted in my small 10’ x 14’ studio in my backyard.

I think a lot about memories, capturing moments in time and the emotions those moments hold when I create a painting. There is so much beauty here and I long to hold onto the beauty I find a little longer. Painting lets me spend more time with these moments and the paintings become a way for other people to spend time with the beauty I found too. I hope they remind you of the beauty you’ve found and experienced yourself and that they let you hold onto it longer and visit it often.
