I'm just starting my new website and am excited about it. Life has been getting in the way of my creating new work, so I'm setting new goals and visualizing myself at the easel and painting more! As I complete new work, I will display it here.
My art journey began when I was 29 and took drawing and watercolor lessons from Phyllis Rutigliano, a master watercolorist and teacher, who I am lucky to still have as a close friend and mentor. From there, I went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and received an associate's degree in fashion illustration. After 2 1/2 years of illustrating and designing children's wear, I started my own freelance advertising business while continuing my fine art education and exhibiting. Moving to beautiful Bucks County, PA in 1986 enticed me to do more en plein-air painting in addition to drawing and painting the model. Murals were also a fun way to make a living for awhile. Now, I concentrate on creating portraits: pet, people and places.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
