I love painting landscape scenes of New England in oils, watercolors or pastels. I began drawing and painting as a child and my parents soon enrolled me in the Currier Museum School in Manchester, NH. I took art classes throughout high school and entered college looking forward to a degree in art education.
After graduating, I taught in the Manchester area schools both public and private, but in 1991 I opened Modes of Expression Fine Art and Instructional Studio, which I ran successfully for 13 years. I am now again teaching in the public school system, and keep my home studio for my painting and semi-private adult art classes and workshops.

My style has been influenced by the Impressionists of the later 1800-1900's, artists Edward Hopper, Childe Hassam, George Bellows, Fairfield Porter, and more recently by Wolf Kahn. I am strongly attracted to the play of sunlight on surfaces and the vivid colors of nature. New England landscapes have been my favorite subject, but I do occasionally travel abroad and enjoy painting there as well. I often do commissioned portraits in pastels or oils.
Contact me by e-mail if you wish to receive further information about commissioned works.
I exhibit at a number of outdoor and seasonal shows. Please visit the New England Landscape Paintings collection and explore the links on that page to see available paintings and some of my previously sold works.
