Biography

My art career evolved in 1989 after an early retirement from an extensive business background.
Although my first and foremost interest was in painting realism, my passion these past years has been creating my unique style referred to as Folk Art primarily focusing on “Country”. As a Folk Artist, I am expressing events that tell a story in a disciplined, detailed and descriptive naïve way jogging memories of the past for many people, evoking charm, warmth and peacefulness. Sometimes specific elements may be over sized to purposely call attention to their importance in my paintings – again, a naïve form of expression. The formulation of my work is derived from life’s experiences. Growing up in apple country and being surrounded by the picturesque beauty of Historical Pultneyville, NY along Lake Ontario has greatly influenced my creativity.

I have published a number of reproductions from my original works. Many commissions have been completed over the years as well as having numerous collectors, both private and corporate – (The American Lung Association) It has been a privilege to have patrons purchase my work throughout the United States as well as from Japan, Australia, Germany, Canada and England.

My work was previously available at the Rochester Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, N.Y., and also in galleries in the Finger Lakes region. I have held one woman exhibits and was a featured artist in the "1997 - I Love New York" television promotion of Wayne County in Upstate New York.
