Me, the week I learned to paint, 1998.

       I started painting in 1998 on a trip to Mexico and never stopped. In 1999 I began spending winters attending art school at Michoacan's state university.  The rest of my art education came from  Art2Life programs and various workshops. 

        Originally I was a portrait and landscape painter, but in 2014 I switched  almost exclusively to abstracts. I love color and geometric designs and much of my work is influenced by textiles and my quilt-making background.

        My paintings are many-layered and mixed-media. My goal is to give viewers plenty to look at so they take their minds off their problems and hopefully connect with a pleasant place inside. 

    I post daily on Instagram and that's the best place to see my most current work.

        For the foreseeable future I'm painting in New England, dividing my time between NH, Mass, and Maine. 

        Thanks for your interest!
