My artful life
Imagine you are stepping into a my studio filled with paints, jars of brushes and lots of canvases and boards, some in the works, others drying, some just blank and waiting patiently. In the corner you’ll see my old easel covered with layers of paint reminding myself of all the years I’ve been painting.
The natural light shines through my windows and I gaze out, and I catch myself dreaming as I watch the towering Chinese Elm and Japanese Maple sway to the wind chimes, and the squirrels maneuver through their branches like acrobats and where the birds, bees and butterflies are fluttering around in their dance.
This is where you’ll find me.
My earliest memory of creating art was when I was just a baby, drawing with crayons on the walls or any surface I could find.
Taking advantage of a fine art education in the late 80’s at the New England School of Art & Design and Montserrat College of Art, in Beverly, Massachusetts, I have been painting prolifically ever since.
Several of my paintings and many reproductions are permanent fixtures at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California and a few other hospitals. To have my work on public display and being part of the contribution in evoking messages of hope and healing for the patients, visitors, and staff of these institutions for many years to come, well ….. it doesn’t get any better than that for me.
I further wish for you to get an inspiration and a joy from my paintings like I do in creating them.
