Life and Art  are more exciting

...when you

 

take risks

 

try new things

 

.and challenge yourself

.It is all a balancing act

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have had a life long passion for art. I love the transparency
of watercolors, the magic that happens when color flows on wet paper, and the simplicity of strokes with Chinese Brush painting. Some days I want to create abstract images with acrylic paints and add textures and unusual papers to make collages. Any day that I make time to paint I feel fulfilled. Life and art are both balancing acts. 

 

Spending a semester of college in Florence, Italy was a highlight of my college years and intensified my early interest in art. I brought this enthusiasm to my work as an elementary school teacher at The Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, NJ where, for thirty years, I sought innovative ways to integrate art into the curriculum. I continue to enjoy teaching art and creativity classes in the Summer Explorations program at Elisabeth Morrow.  I have also led many groups of students and parents on trips to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I am an active member of The Ethical Cultural Society of Bergen County and the Martin Luther King Birthday Committee where
I have exhibited and donated my artwork. My work is in private collections in Italy, France, Canada, and the U.S.

 

I have been fortunate to have studied with many excellent teachers and traveled on art workshops to Italy, France, China, Maine, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and New York. I have studied watercolor painting, Chinese Brush Painting, batik, silk painting and most recently acrylic painting and collage.
