I am an artist/illustrator residing in Upstate, NY. My paintings have been shown in art galleries, shops, and wineries across the Finger Lakes region. My subject matter ranges from landscapes to wildlife to character portraits. I also love book illustrating and have illustrated childrens’ books such as Poster Girl, published by Aboon Books and Pearl Girl, published by Penguin Readers.
My aim as an artist is to impact people - to evoke a feeling of pleasure and an uplifting of spirit for having viewed my work. I paint with both watercolor and oils.
I used to stay within the confines of realism when using color, but now I try to think outside the box and experiment. Lately, my trees might be a deep purple and prussian blue, or my moonlight a violet stream interspersed with golden yellow and alizarin crimson.
I choose vibrant and contrasting colors to bring joy, life and excitement to my paintings. It is my sincere desire that people can connect with that.
