Artists Profile
After participating in all available art classes in high school and college, I took a break from painting until retirement. In the intervening years, I studied at the NY School of Interior Design, worked as an interior designer and as a window dresser for a Greenwich, CT decorating business, ran a small catering business specializing in desserts, wrote special interest articles for and worked on layout for a Greenwich, CT magazine, and owned a desktop publishing and graphic arts business producing marketing materials for small businesses. All these businesses have a common thread of art, visual expression and a desire to try new artistic mediums.

While living in Riverside Connecticut for 30 years as a wife and mother, I pursued my artistic inclinations by volunteering at our local public schools and yacht club on various decorative painting and crafts projects. At home I painted several decorative murals of local points of interest and enjoyed needlepoint and gardening. Since moving to AMI with my husband in 2005, I have dabbled in mosaics with ceramic tiles, pottery shards, beach glass and Italian glass tiles on projects such as tables, sideboards, mirrors, birdbaths, benches, trays and planters. My first love, however is painting acrylics on canvases. My beach baby paintings have resulted in a number of commissions. I specialize in landscapes and florals ... all meant to take the viewer on a visual "vacation."
