About the Artist

image1

I began painting in 2013 after retiring from a 34 year career as a Registered Nurse.  Nature, light, color, form and texture have always fascinated me, and the beauty of Maine constantly confronts me.  Working  with the fluidity of oil paint, the delight of observing light, shadow and contrast, and the challenge of mixing colors has been a profound experience since I began my  journey into painting.  I hope you have enjoyed my website. Please check back from time to time, as I add one or two paintings a month.
