Fine Artist

The artist presented her art to the public in 2011 and was encouraged by the reception to make the leap to full-time work as an artist. Enjoying the challenge and immediacy of plein air work, the artist creates many paintings on site. She’s earned a reputation for using lush greens and vibrant blues.

A self-taught artist with a lifetime of experience, the artist earned her Bachelor of Arts with majors in unrelated fields. After working for many years and raising a family, she earned her Juris Doctor and practiced law for several years. During these times, she continued to paint.

The artist chooses to work in oil because it appears to be alive in the way that the colors continue to blend and change as they dry. There’s something about making that first large “swoop” of paint and then becoming lost in the medium until the image may be called complete.

You may find her art in galleries, businesses, and residences from Maine to Florida. 

She is currently represented by Beth Ellis Cove Gallery, Ogunquit, Maine; Ingram Fine Art, Wiscasset, Maine; NW Barrett Gallery, Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and Trumpet Fine Arts, Peterborough, New Hampshire. Please find a complete exhibit listing on her website.
