About

europe-2019-0535.jpg

I am a practicing artist located in Cary, North Carolina. My works are created using watercolors, acrylic paints graphite, and alcohol markers.

My favorite subjects include historic architecture and pet portraits. I am a crazy cat lady at heart and share my love of animals with many who wish to demonstrate that love with a painting to preserve a moment. I also enjoy figure drawing, and attend a few area live model sessions every month. 

My Rutgers BFA concentration in drawing and printmaking served me well in my 15-year career as a clothing designer in New York City before moving my family to Cary, NC in 1998.

My painting journey began in 2014 after a vow made with a friend that the coming year would be when we got back to our artist's roots. Eight years later, I sell and exhibit my work and am never turning back!

During 2020 I embraced creating outside ("en plein air") as a way to connect with nature, and frankly get out of my house! Over the past three years, I started creating with watercolors and alcohol markers because they are not messy and easy to take with me in a small backpack. I also love the bright colors. You can see some of these under my "places" tab in the navigation bar.

If you would like to commission work, please drop me an email from the Contact page on this website or click here.

In 2022 I began appearing at some Cary-based pop-up markets. This is a great way to meet me and see my work in person. I frequently have a pop-up tent at the Cary Downtown Farmers Market which takes place on Saturdays from 8am-noon. I also pop-up at the Art-N-Soul Market at Waverly Place, and the Downtown Cary Food & Flea on second Sundays.
