I graduated from Moore College of Art ('77) and began my professional career as assistant to the Art Director in various advertising agencies. In 1987, I opened the Art Depot, an art school in Merchantville, New Jersey that provided classes for adults, teens, and children.
I have participated in outdoor Art and Crafts Festivals in NJ, painted a series of ten "Memory" paintings for Alzheimer patients, and currently teach adult painting and drawing classes at Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, NJ. I also curate art exhibitions at the gallery at Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital in Cherry Hill, NJ.
My work includes pastel drawings and oil paintings of Victorian and beach themed people and places, cats, sunsets, and flowers. Pastel colors and bright sun light are used to create colorful shadows and reflections which creates a kind of "soft realism." I love when my art reminds viewers of a family member, cat, or special memory.
I currently live in Haddonfield, NJ and in my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and grandchildren.
