|I have loved art since I was very young and was involved in every creative project I could get my hands on.
At age seven, my drawing was selected to cover a school Christmas magazine.
I knew back then that artistic creation would always be an important part of my life.
In my early teens, I was a finalist in a statewide design competition and my work was displayed at the
Currier Gallery of Art, now the Currier Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire.
I received recognition and awards in my youth for my artwork and was elected "Class Artist" at
Pinkerton Academy in 1979. My art instructor encouraged me to pursue art as a career, saying,
"There's nothing like getting paid for what you love to do."
I studied drawing at University of New Hampshire, but ultimately chose a "more practical" career route.
But I never forgot my instructor's words.
Following college, I was involved in many creative projects at work and home and would occasionally
draw in different mediums when I felt the creative tug at my sleeve.
In 1999, while painting winter scenes in acrylic for Christmas gifts, I realized I loved painting.
I bought oil paints and became completely consumed - waking up early and going to bed late to paint.
And when I couldn't paint, I would draw. Simultaneously, I was going through a career change and
decided to channel my energy into what I really wanted to do -
Since then, I have won multiple awards for paintings in both oils and colored pencil.
I continue to hone my skills as a painter and push my boundaries as an artist.
I am a juried member of New Hampshire Artist Association & MAA Art Gallery;
Manchester Artist Association; Organization of Independent Artists, NYC.
