I am a lifelong resident of New Jersey, and realized I had a passion for drawing and painting at a very young age. My parents arranged to have me study oil painting with acclaimed artist Louis Cellini and I painted for a number of years prior to being married and having children. A busy life kept me away from painting for many years, but I picked up the brush again in 2012 and have been painting non stop. I am fascinated by color and light and find beauty where others might not.
I most enjoy painting landscapes and seascapes. My inspiration comes from nature here in New Jersey and places I've traveled.
