About the artist:

"As a landscape oil painter, I am interested in exploring themes of transition
and contrast in nature, and capturing often overlooked moments in
everyday scenes. For me, painting is a form of meditation and, if I am lucky,
an opportunity to witness that fleeting moment between the ordinary and
extraordinary. My recent work in charcoal and graphite has allowed me to
better capture this feeling of nature’s unpredictability.

I grew up in the Hudson River village of Dobbs Ferry NY. I received a BFA
in illustration from Syracuse University. After many years working as a
graphic designer in Manhattan, I decided to return to my passion – painting
and drawing. I have been exhibiting my work in various east coast galleries
since 2006.

I currently live in Brooklyn NY with my husband and daughter."
