Artist’s Statement


As an artist, I strive to evoke emotions through my subject matter,

some of which can be quite dark and bizarre, and  I defy all rules that dictate

how and what I should create by society.  To me, every stroke and

choice of color come from within and have been sparked by emotion, which is what art

is all about to me – emotion – that of the artist and the spectator.


My Bio

In 1973 I married a military man and left New York to accompany him to Europe.  There I began my 21-year career as a dedicated military spouse in the U.S. Air Force.  Concurrently, I launched my college adjuncting career with City Colleges of Chicago in Spain.

In 1992 I opened an antiques, collectibles, and art business before

transitioning into real estate in 2006.

In 2012 I moved to Asheville, NC and discovered the exciting field

of hospitality for which to work.   I continued painting and photographing and successfully sold many works at numerous venues in the cities of Asheville and Black Mountain.

In 2017 it was time to move to Florida and help with family matters, while continuing to paint, photograph, exhibit and sell at various venues in the City of Vero Beach until COVID hit.

Here it is 2023 and I am ready to resume my artsy activities now that COVID is a bit behind us.  I renewed my memberships with the Vero Beach:  Art Club, Cultural Council, and Museum of Art, and hope to exhibit and sell my works at venues throughout Vero Beach through these affiliations.
