Capturing the beauty of nature that surrounds me inspires me to create my art. Whether it’s in the solidarity of a rock formation or in the delicacy of the flower petals that bloom in the spring for only a short period of time there’s a magnificent canvas to experience every day. All one has to do is take the time to look, see and experience.
Through a variety of media and techniques I hope to encourage the viewer to look a little more closely at nature’s intricate beauty at different times of the day, changing with the seasons to experience and savor the essence and beauty in nature.

I graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1986 majoring in art education. For the next 29 years I taught art to middle schoolers and high school students for the Plumsted Township Board of Education providing an enriching art experience. Under my direction I provided a variety of yearly art events and experiences for my students and the community. I was a valuable member of the Plumsted Council of the Arts coordinating art related experiences for our community along with supervising community adult and workshops for children for the Plumsted Community Afterschool program. I also supervised many student art teachers for a variety of college programs. Fostering the arts at a variety of levels has been a rewarding experience over the years. Now retired, I wish to express my love for the arts in creating art for me.
