It all started as a very little girl with a pencil and some scraps of paper, the insert papers from silk stockings my grandmother would bring home for me after a long day in the ladies accessories department of RH Stern in Boston.. At an early age I began drawing ladies fashions, which led to majoring in Fashion Illustration and Illustration in college, graduating Syracuse University and so it goes. I see how sketching those lovely ladies sparked my love of French Fashion and French woman’s portraits. It is funny how one thing leads to another. So here I am an artist and have returned to another true love of mine, painting. I paint on just about any surface I can find, preferably something old that needs a bit if a face lift. I also adore working on canvas as well. I love the romantic style of shabby French cottage chic and try to bring that to my work. My palette is soft and a bit reminiscent of the French Impressionist which still are the favorites in my heart of hearts. I presently live in Melbourne, Florida, a long way from my roots in the northeast. I feel there is romance and beauty in all that I see and try to bring that to all that I do.
