My art training includes graduate level courses in oils, printmaking and design in New Jersey and Ohio. Several years as an interior designer, however, focused my art mainly on the practical with both renderings and presentation boards.
With our return to the East coast came the luxury of time and the search for a new medium: pastels. Classes and workshops with Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Albert Handell, Dick McEvoy, Maggie Price, Susan Ogilvie and Frank Federico have sparked my enthusiasm and expanded my approach. Renewing my affinity for acrylics has also been an enriching experience.
Now interpreting landscape, architecture, still life and the changing play of light and shadow in pastels and acrylic is both a pleasure and a challenge.
