I am a practicing artist located in Cary, North Carolina. My works are created using watercolors, acrylic paints graphite, and alcohol markers.
My main subjects are figurative works depicting crowd scenes, 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.
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 roots. Eight years later, I am selling and exhibiting my work and never turning back!
During these strange times we now live in, I embraced creating outside ("en plein air") as a way to connect with nature, and frankly get out of my house! Over the past two years, I started creating with watercolors and alcohol markers because they are not messy and easy to take wherever I go. I also love the bright colors. You can see some of these under my "places" tab in the navigation bar.
