My father was a gifted painter who infused everything he did with artistic flair.  I inherited this trait and have brought a creative touch to the various occupations in my life. However, I never put a brush to paper until, at the urging of a friend, I walked into the Rhinebeck Artist Shop and bought some supplies.  Not knowing how to get started, I enrolled in a beginner’s watercolor class with Betsy Jacaruso for one month.  I enjoyed the medium and continued to paint on Thursday nights.  I paint what looks nice to me and love the challenge of trying to put that moment of beauty onto the paper.

My paintings have been shown at Grand Cru Beer & Cheese Market in Rhinebeck, and at the Morton Memorial Library in Rhinecliff.
